Jill Lenz, Chair, started the meeting at 10.35 am
Sallie showed an example (mock up here in PDF) of the faculty page design we have so far and explained the discussion and reasoning behind the design.
The faculty member’s picture would appear in the upper left corner with name, title, phone, office and email information immediately to the right of the picture. The VTH faculty page would show the hospital switchboard number and the hospital address as clinicians don’t want to be contacted directly. Their email will be listed.
This will contain professional degrees. The suggested order is lowest to highest, listing the university name but no year.
Professional licenses or certifications that are in addition to the degree.
In the following 4 sections, the content will be provided by the faculty member.
If a section has no content, it will not be part of the page, in order to eliminate blank space.
If available based on a unique name, we would have a link to PubMed for the faculty member. Then, a list of no more than 10 publications or 5 years history. These can be representative. The faculty member’s name in the list of authors will be bold.
Ground mail address for department and office.
All sections will be left aligned.
Sallie said the group still needed to fine tune some things and write up all the details for the standards document and provide code samples for the PubMed search for someone that may have published under a maiden and married name and opening a link in a new window.
Jill asked members not involved with the faculty page prototype to think of 18
tasks or things to do related to locating information and navigating the CVMBS Web site as a
member of the "Staff" user group. Judea offered to do the same as an "Animal Client". Please
document the tasks, the steps (links) followed and the resulting URL. This will help Don
Zimmerman and his team for the next cycle of usability testing where a user is asked to
perform timed tasks using the CVMBS Website.
Some examples would be:
The November meeting is cancelled. Please use this time to:
December Meeting: Don Zimmerman and Teresa Yohon will attend to discuss
the recent homework assignments, how they contribute to their usability process and answer any
questions you may have for them regarding the consulting they have provided.
Meeting adjourned at 11:30 am.
