The Pro Vice Chancellor (Digital Futures) sponsors the meeting on behalf of the Deputy Vice Chancellor and Vice President (Academic), and provides a direct link to the Senate and the University Executive, where decisions about learning and teaching directions and the allocation of funds and resources to support innovation in teaching practices are ratified.
