FYI Stories

Two-factor authentication

Since two-factor authentication provides more security than a simple password, UD IT recommends that it be used whenever it's offered.

Faculty climate survey

The NSF ADVANCE grant team at UD has shared the results of a faculty climate survey on topics including promotion and tenure, evaluation, merit, workload, family-friendly policies, mentoring, and career satisfaction.

Peggy Smith from Smith and Associates will present the morning keynote on cross-generational communication. Team-building exercises will demonstrate the value of the individual for the achievement of common goals.

Participants who recently migrated to UD's Google Mail will find the lunchtime walk-through especially valuable. There will be an opportunity to have questions answered by an IT expert and get an introduction to the most popular Google Apps for Education.

A focus on assessment will conclude the day with a showcase of group reflection and tangible outcomes based on the exercises presented.

New Directions in Student Engagement” is the final day in this year's Summer Faculty Institute.
