‘The EDvantage’ Appoints Editorial Board of Higher Ed Faculty

Arlington, Va. (April 2, 2014)The EDvantage, a free online resource hub for educators, announces its Editorial Board of eight faculty from higher education institutions across the country. Board members will advise The EDvantage directors and coordinators on the site’s development and act as gatekeepers, vetting outside resources before they appear on the site.

Launched in October 2013, The EDvantage curates high-quality resources, including videos, articles and supplemental learning guides, so instructors can spend less time searching and more time teaching.

The EDvantage Editorial Board members are:

  • Arthur Diamond, University of Nebraska at Omaha
  • Daniel Houser, George Mason University
  • Edward Tower, Duke University
  • Gailen Hite, Columbia University
  • Isaac Dilanni, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
  • Malavika Nair, Troy University

“Relevant, timely and engaging instructional resources are more important than ever, especially in the larger, general education courses such as Principles of Microeconomics,” said Arthur Diamond, Kayser Professor in the department of economics at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. “The EDvantage offers professors a resource that ties their instruction to current events and demonstrates practical applications of their lessons.”

With access to a wide variety of content, educators can select the materials that complement their teaching methods and students’ learning styles. To learn more about how The EDvantage can help with economics instruction, visit www.theEDvantage.org.
