An important part of DLINQ’s mission involves engaging students, faculty, and staff in inquiry around emerging technologies, new digital practices, and digital research. Our exploratory initiatives include Studios, where students can do a focused deep-dive into digital topics impacting our world today. We also offer workshops and professional learning opportunities that explore a wide range of contemporary topics, from digital identity and security, to online and hybrid teaching and learning, to emerging technologies and their application across disciplines.

DLINQ works closely with partners across the institution, including the Digital Liberal Arts initiative; the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Research; Information Technology Services; the Libraries; Student Creativity, Engagement, and Careers; and with the leaders of Middlebury’s academic programs. We continue to welcome input and new partners.
