The Digital Learning Labs located in Dakota County Technical College 2-104 and Inver Hills Community College Fine Arts 250 were created for faculty to learn and experiment with classroom and other academic technology they are using or considering for use in their classrooms and teaching practice. Faculty can use these spaces either alone or with the support of CTL staff.
Digital Learning Labs are also spaces for students to learn about the academic technology employed by their instructors. CTL staff use conduct student workshops in these rooms on a regular schedule. Student workshops can also be requested by faculty.
