Distance Education Advisory Council
The Distance Education Advisory Council provides a forum for the discussion of current issues in the area of online learning that would be of common interest across the academic units. The discussions include academic pedagogies, practices, activities, and resources in the units. Topics include pedagogies, policies at the local and state level, and the production of documents that are helpful to faculty and administration in the conduct of online learning activities. (These include the university’s Pandemic Plan, the Continuity of Instruction Plan, the Academic Integrity in Online Courses Guidelines, etc.) The committee is chaired by the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Emerging Academic Initiatives, and provides advise to Academic Affairs as needed. Membership includes a dean appointed representative from each college, the libraries, ITCS, and the appropriate faculty senate committees. Meetings are held once a month.
