Digital Liberal Arts Collective @ CC

What are the Digital Liberal Arts (DLA) and what faculty, staff and student collaborations have been fostered in recent years under this initiative? Come to the Block 3 Faculty Research Luncheon to learn about ongoing projects and possibilities for the future. You’ll hear from History faculty, Dr. Tip Ragan and Dr. Jane Murphy, Academic Applications Specialist, Dr. Jennifer Golightly, and CC student Darryl Filmore ’20. Collaboration via the DLA at CC has expanded from faculty research projects on which students and staff worked, to entire courses and to class-based projects, making pedagogical use of the DLA most popular over the past year. Our presentation will showcase a few DLA projects and the digital tools used to build them and discussion about some of the ways DLA tools are used in the classroom at CC. You can see some of the projects highlighted on the DLA @ CC website here: sites.coloradocollege.edu/dlaatcc
