TLDE’s strategic direction and work around campus is shaped in conjunction with many groups. Our work would not be possible without the input of faculty, staff and administrative partners.

Distance Learning Faculty Advisory Board (DLFAB)

Distance Learning Faculty Advisory Board (DLFAB) is a subcommittee of the Academic Governing Council (AGC). DLFAB advises TLDE on matters including GRCC’s distance education standards, academic integrity for distance education, LMS use and updates, and instructional technologies.
