Eric Donath, instructional programmer/analyst in Instructional Technologies, has been named the MVP for February.
In announcing the award, the Office of Human Resources said:
“Eric developed an ‘Early Alert At-Risk Notification’ reporting system that sends alerts to faculty when a student is in danger of failing a course due to inactivity. This system allows faculty to provide early advice and counseling so students can be saved from losing ground in their coursework. This promises to be a significant help in detecting and saving students who are at risk of failing a course. He worked diligently to develop an online faculty promotion process. The system gives online access to all individuals tasked with reviewing faculty promotion portfolio submissions and the result is a significantly streamlined procedure.”
