LITS Hosts 2021 Liberal Arts Digital Innovation Workshop
The Liberal Arts Collaborative for Digital Innovation (LACOL) has announced that Hamilton's Library and Information Technology Services will host the LACOL consortium-wide workshop on June 21-23, 2021. All LACOL member schools will be invited to send teams of faculty, technologists, librarians, and academic support specialists to Hamilton to share experiments and innovations and to forge further collaborations. Williams College will host next year’s workshop.
Founded in 2014, LACOL is a partnership of Amherst College, Bryn Mawr College, Carleton College, Davidson College, Hamilton College, Haverford College, Swarthmore College, Vassar College, Washington and Lee University, and Williams College.
According to its website, “LACOL leverages the power of consortial relationships to promote excellent and innovative teaching, learning, and research in the liberal arts, with a special emphasis on utilizing and adapting emerging technologies. It prioritizes collaboration among its member schools, focusing on projects that they can accomplish jointly that would be less robust or impossible for any of them to undertake alone. LACOL encourages experimentation to develop, share, and assess the most effective modes of digital teaching and learning.”
