Working with the Digital Learning Lab means gaining a pedagogical partner for your course. In our collaborations with faculty, we offer a range of resources to help scaffold instructional goals. In addition to providing a unique (and soon to be renovated) technology-enhanced classroom space, we specialize in creating customized websites, blogs, tools, and training sessions for Princeton courses.
Instructors are welcome to meet with us early in the semester to design a strategy to support their vision for the course. Web-based solutions, such as blogs, foster community and collaboration and are easily tailored to a specific pedagogical approach. For hands-on exploration and training, the DLL can be reserved for one or more class sessions. Faculty are welcome to teach in the DLL, or they may partner with DLL staff to build an interactive session with a specialist. Recent seminars (see below) include video production and editing, audio recording/podcasting, digital narrative, digital mapping and timelines, and web development.
Following the instructional session(s), students can utilize the DLL space and its resources to complete their digital assignments. Outside of class sessions, the DLL is a student-centric space where campus communities are encouraged to engage in dialogues around digital tools and creative processes. In addition to a student-led DLL multimedia workshop series each semester, students reserve the DLL for competitions, club gatherings, k-12 outreach, study sessions, and workshops. The DLL also maintains a staff of 15-20 students, each with tutoring experience and expertise in various multimedia workflows, who are available for questions or consultations outside of normal business hours.
