Faculty Advisory Committee


Each member of the  Faculty Center for Learning Development/Faculty Advisory Committee (FCLD/FAC) serves as a liaison between University faculty and the staff of the FCLD. They perform the following duties:

  • work with the FCLD staff to maintain the general mission statement and provide recommendations, 
    advise the FCLD staff of the pedagogical needs of faculty as they apply to technology and make recommendations on the content and scheduling of faculty training sessions offered by the FCLD,
  • apprise the FCLD/FAC of the consideration of new technologies for use in the FCLD and seek information about the needs and desires of the general University faculty via the FCLD/FAC prior to making any recommendations for substantive changes in technologies that directly impact faculty via the FCLD. The FCLD staff may feel free to call upon members of the FCLD/FAC to demonstrate their support for such changes,
  • provide the faculty in their colleges  updates on the activities of the FCLD and seek feedback from their colleagues in an effort to provide representative input at the FCLD/FAC meetings.
