DTLT is now DLS!
In the fall of 2019, the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies (DTLT) was restructured as Digital Learning Support (DLS). DLS is a service unit that helps students and faculty develop the skills they need to integrate digital technologies into their teaching, learning and research at the University.
Digital Learning Support
DLS provides faculty support including consultations around integration of digital tools into courses, creation of digital projects, and design of hybrid or fully online courses, including development of new general education and Digital Intensive courses. Workshops around digital tools and techniques as well as partnerships with the Center for Teaching provide opportunities for faculty to expand and improve their use of digital tools in teaching and learning.
Digital Knowledge Center
Support for students is provided by the Digital Knowledge Center (DKC) with student peer-tutoring on a wide variety of digital projects, tools, and techniques. Students can sign up for tutorials around different technologies used in their classes, or meet with tutors to discuss projects and learn new skills. The DKC and DLS partner with faculty to develop and integrate digital projects for courses and ways to support them.
The ThinkLab maker space located in the Simpson Library offers students and faculty opportunities to integrate the process of making by utilizing digital and other tools. From 3D printing to laser cutting to electronics to sewing, ThinkLab staff and student peer-tutors provide support and instruction for all kinds of projects. Working in partnership with DLS and DKC staff, the ThinkLab offers another avenue for supported digital projects in courses.
