[+] Reveal Overview of Process and Technical Guidance
- The faculty member fills out the electronic form found on the UVM Provost's web site (blue/green sheet)
- The faculty member collects all supporting materials that they would like to use as supplementary examples to their narrative in the downloaded form from step 1.
- The faculty member converts all of the supporting materials to PDF files and names them like:
- The faculty member either meets with Laurie Gelles with all of the supplementary materials, or he/she uploads these files to their zoo account (~netid) using fetch or another SFTP program.
- The faculty member learns from Laurie Gelles (either in person or via email) how to create their links and put them into the form from step 1.
- The faculty member creates and tests all of their links in the form from step 1.
- The faculty member provides an electronic copy (via UVM's filetransfer, pen drive, or burned CD/DVD) to his/her reviewing chair.
At this point, the chairperson does what he/she needs to do with Kelly Circe.
