Hi Brent,

You might consider some of the materials we put together for a workshop at
the most recent MLA.  The URL for those materials is
http://www.mla.org/resources/documents/rep_it/dig_eval.  I'll attach a
description of the workshop below.

All best,



Evaluating Digital Work for Tenure and Promotion: A Workshop for Evaluators
and Candidates

This page provides resources for the 2008 MLA convention session "Evaluating
Digital Work for Tenure and Promotion: A Workshop for Evaluators and
Candidates," sponsored by the MLA Ad Hoc Committee on the Structure of the
Annual Convention in conjunction with the MLA Committee on Information

Presiding: Robert James Blake, Univ. of California, Davis; Raymond G.
Siemens, Univ. of Victoria

Description: Do you know how to assess effectively digital work for
promotion and tenure? Do you know how to prepare your dossier so that your
digital work can be effectively assessed? This three-hour workshop will
offer discussion of case studies (including CVs, digital projects, and
supporting materials) and identification of effective evaluation strategies
and guidelines. The workshop will be limited to thirty participants so that
there will be ample time for facilitated discussion. Our facilitators have
extensive experience in the evaluation of digital literary scholarship and
of work in computer-assisted language learning.
