The Faculty Advisory Committee on Online Education

In Spring 2013, University Provost Claire Sterk created the Faculty Advisory Committee on Online Education. This body advises 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.  Its membership is drawn from faculty representing all academic units of the university.
