This follow up article to the Vision and Change document of 2011 is just what I was waiting for.  There are sections on helping faculty "become agents of change" as well as "changing the student experience".  Appendix A lists quite a large number of project summaries that involve the incorporation of various Vision and Change competencies and core concepts.  There is a website link to obtain more detailed abstracts about these projects.
