Digital Learning Staff
Guided by Davidson’s primary purpose “to assist students in developing humane instincts and disciplined and creative minds for lives of leadership and service” we strive to include digital spaces in these endeavors. In what ways can technology be leveraged for active learning, working outside of classroom walls, creating authentic assignments, and building student agency?
The Digital Learning Team collaborates with faculty on the use, development, and evaluation of a wide range of teaching and learning technologies. We are available to assist in the design of assignments, projects, or courses that involve digital tools and spaces. You may have an idea for a project or assignment that uses story mapping, timelines, podcasts, video, infographics, and social media, or you would like to develop an online course space.
The Digital Learning team and our colleagues in the library are here to answer your questions. We are available by appointment in the library 9am – 4pm (EST) Monday through Friday.
If you want to partner in a class, please email email@example.com. Other Digital Learning-specific questions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jacob Heil (he/him)
Assistant Director of Digital Learning
On any given day, I'll be working with the incredible Digital Learning team as we consult with faculty and students on digital projects and pedagogies, collaborate with library colleagues to build sustainable platforms and practices for digital scholarship, and connect this work to our collective vision for the Library of the Future. Please be in touch if I can help you to think about (and with) digital tools or methods, open educational resources, critical literacies, or the intersections between the material and the digital.

Zara Rao (she/her)
Digital Learning Fellow
On a typical day, I meet with students and faculty and consult on the use of technology to enhance scholarly communication and learning outcomes. I also research and document how to use various digital learning tools so that the Davidson community can access the resources that empower them to achieve their goals. I create and publish these resources, which are available through the Digital Learning site, along with blog posts and other forms of outreach I create.
Students: Media Consultants are available to help you with various digital media projects using technology platforms such as Davidson Domains, the Adobe Creative Suite, iMovie, podcasting, and more.
