Committee on Online Education Forming

Senior Vice Provost for Undergraduate and Continuing Education Lynn Zimmerman spoke to the council about the creation of a new Faculty Advisory Committee on Online Education. Two weeks after the call went out in early March, seventy-six faculty had been nominated (both self-nominations and nominations by others) to serve on the committee. This body will advise the provost on shaping Emory’s goals and vision for online education, establishing standards and proposal guidelines for university-wide online course offerings (such as Coursera courses), reviewing and selecting proposals for university-wide online courses, and considering policy issues such as licensing, intellectual property, faculty workload, and compensation issues. “Our goal at this point is to create a balanced group that is very representative,” Zimmerman said, “We are thrilled to have such a deep pool to draw from.”
