Target Audience: Learning and Teaching Academic Professional Staff who wish to establish or develop their Pure profile
Pure is the University's information management system for tracking activities and outputs of Academic Professional staff.
It is heavily used in tracking the activities and outputs of researchers for the REF, so you could be forgiven for thinking this is something for the researchers. But it's not. It is for teaching staff too. And not just a tool that we engage with at promotion time either. This is a tool that you can use to tell the story of your career development and highlight what you do within your role.
Pure is a single point of entry with a number of outputs. So when you add information into Pure, it updates your Knowledgebase profile instantly and your staff page within a day or so. This is your externally facing record of your professional achievements.
The STEP team have been working with Strathclyde's Pure guru, Christine Gallacher and she has agreed to provide a training session in using Pure specifically for Learning and Teaching staff. This session will take place on Thursday 9th June, 2 - 4pm.
When applying for a course, you should note that there will be a £50* to your department if you cancel within 5** working days or you do not attend, and a £25 charge for cancellations/ non-attendance between 6 and 10 working days. There will be no charge for cancellation made 10 or more working days before the event. Notifications should be made to OSDU@strath.ac.uk
A department is welcome to send someone else in your place if they wish without incurring a charge, providing that person has the necessary pre-requisites for the course. In the case of courses split over more than one day, you must attend ALL parts of the course. If you fail to attend any part you will be charged as outlined above.
*This is the standard charge for cancellation or non-attendance of course of 1 days duration or less. For some courses there may be a higher cancellation charge and if this is the case you will be advised of this at the time of booking.
**Any bookings made within 10 days of the event will incur the charges as specified.
