Founded in 2015, the Digital Liberal Arts Collaborative consists of a team of creative people who help the Grinnell College community develop and infuse digital resources into its scholarship, teaching, and learning.
By harnessing the entrepreneurial spirit of Grinnell faculty and students toward the meaningful incorporation of technology into the teaching and learning of the liberal arts, the Digital Liberal Arts Collaborative’s goal is to assist the College in maintaining its leadership position among its peer institutions by providing a model of liberal arts education in the twenty-first century.
We provide the support, expertise, and resources that enable the College to strive toward a culture that apprehends the learning potential afforded by technologies, one in which faculty feel emboldened to experiment and play, in which students feel empowered with new skills, and in which all understand their ethical responsibilities as both digital citizens and members of a small liberal arts community.
DLAC has developed several resources in response to the transition to online teaching and learning. A space for conversation and questions has been created at the Faculty Pedagogy and Technology MS Teams site. Resources for online course development can be found at the Keep Teaching and Learning @ Grinnell website.
