collaborate, teach, transform

Whittier’s Digital Liberal Arts Program (DigLibArts) is a collaborative initiative to enhance the liberal arts at Whittier College by empowering faculty, staff, librarians, and students to make full and better use of the digital technologies that are reshaping pedagogical approaches and transforming research throughout the liberal arts. The DigLibArts Collaboratory in our campus library is designed to support and inspire faculty (by providing personal assistance, workshop training and stipends, and tools) to integrate digital technologies into their pedagogy and to foster the building of relationships with other liberal arts colleges developing similar initiatives.

While continuing to support these individual efforts around campus,DigLibArts’s new project, the DigLibArts 2020 Initiative, supports the development of a culture of digital well-being for all members of our campus community, by enhancing information and digital literacies in our curriculum and campus-wide. For more information on our projects, please explore the tabs above.
