How to Add a Faculty Workshop
Every week, Amy Applebaum emails the next week's Faculty Workshops to various SLS Faculty and Staff members. These workshops will need to be posted in here on the Scholarly Life page:
(See the right sidebar, these faculty workshops appear under "Upcoming" or "Past Workshops", depending on the event's date.)
For reference, here's is a golden example of a Faculty Workshop:
Here's How to Add a Faculty Workshop to the Scholarly Life Page:
- Login with your SUNet. You should have the role "Calendar: Admin"
- From the the top, black menu, go to:
Content Management -> Create Content -> Event
- Under the tab "Event Title and Description"
- For the field "Name of the Event", go to Amy's email and copy/paste the title of the workshop (without the quote marks).
- For the field "Event Description", enter the brief description that Amy has sent. Usually it'll be something like : Faculty Lunch with Professor So-and-So.
UNDER PENALTY OF DEATH, yes death, DO NOT attach any papers or documents to these events. These papers are drafts and faculty WILL NOT WANT these drafts to be made public. The people who'll need these papers, have already received them through other routes.
- For "Event Type", select "Faculty Workshop"
- For "Sponsor Type", select "Office".
- For "Name of Sponsor", type: Office of Communications and Public Relations
- For "Admission Restrictions", select "This is a Stanford Law School private /or invitation only event."
- Go to the tab "Event Managers and Contact Info"
- For "Primary Contact Name", type: Stanford Law School
- For "Primary Contact Email", type: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Go to the tab "Event Date and Room Reservation"
- Enter the date and time.
- For the field "Hide this Event's Time Info..." select "Yes."
- For "Law School Room", select "Offsite". UNDER PENALTY OF DEATH, yes again death, DO NOT put the room number. For one, the people who need to know... already know the room number. For two, the room number would be displayed for all the public to see, that is something that should not happen because this is a private event. For three, if you were to put the room number, it'd trigger an email to facilities to reserve this room. Because the room has already been reserved thorugh another route, there's no need to reserve the room again.
- For "Expected Attendance", type: 10
- Go to the tab "Special Requirements and Instructions"
- Select "No" for all of the questions.
- Go to the tab "Event Status"
- Select "Approved and Published"
- Click the "Save" button to finish.
- Check your work
- All good? Pat yourself on the back, you're done!
Do I need to tell anyone that the workshop is on the calendar?
So, why do we post these Faculty Workshops?
Well, long ago, a directive came from Dean Larry Kramer that the Scholarly Life page needed to house the latest faculty workshops. But since these events are very private, it was decided that only the workshop's title and desription would be available. It's the job of the Office of Communications to promote scholarly events such as these, and that's why you are the lucky one to post this to the online calendar for all the world to see.
