DigLibArts: collaborate, teach, transform

Whittier’s Digital Liberal Arts Center (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 emerging center 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.

DigLibArts @ Whittier College seeks to:

  • sustain a collaborative campus community to nurture innovation and creativity
  • integrate information and digital literacies into the curriculum
  • enhance the ability of faculty innovators and first adopters to advance and connect their work
  • extend our network with other liberal arts colleges and consortia to share results and learn from each other

 

DigLibArts is generously funded by grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
