Faculty Advisory Council

VIDL Advisory Board 2016 - 2017

The Advisory Board for the Vanderbilt Institute for Digital Learning (VIDL) is charged with advising VIDL on general and specific matters relating to its function on campus, and with serving in an ambassador position for VIDL to the larger Vanderbilt community. In general, the board should expect to offer advice about the types of services VIDL should offer. Specifically, the board will help rank applications received for Faculty Innovation Program grants and will help rank proposals for other services. Finally, board members are expected to be familiar enough with the services offered by VIDL that they can help “spread the word” to other faculty about VIDL and the services it provides.
