This fall, Digital Learning Lab offers three workshop series organized in collaboration with the Student Design Agency and Julian Street Library. Presenting sessions that explore photography, video, and design, the series will span two locations (DLL and Julian Street) and feature an all-student cast (including DLL Specialists, Julian Street staff, and designers from the Student Design Agency).  These twelve students have generously offered to share their knowledge, insights and enthusiasm – “lifting the veil” on their creative processes.

All students, staff and faculty are welcome to attend. Registration is required. Please follow R.S.V.P links below to register for each event.
