 Notes and Recommendations

  • Start early, especially creating the PDFs required.  Maintaining materials for your e-dossier should be a year-round process.
  • Do not alter the layout, text, sequence - these are standardized per policy 5:060.
  • It is highly recommended that you export and back up your e-dossier every time you update it in D2L.  This back up can be used to restore your e-dossier.  Please see Exporting Your e-Dossier for additional information.
  • Ensure you can log into your current year e-dossier.
  • If needed, ask for help early and often.
  • Remember that evaluations at APSU are cumulative; sorting new and previous materials in the e-dossier per academic year will help create a continuing record of achievement for retention, tenure, and promotion actions.
  • Use the Last_Minute_Checklist.pdffor final guidance.
