Teaching: Teaching and research support from our specialists

Students in Kristi Multhaups Reminiscence Project ClassBased on requests and feedback from faculty, the CTL, Library, and Technology & Innovation have created trans-divisional teams to support Davidson faculty’s needs. Composed of staff mostly from the Library and Technology & Innovation, these teams have specialists in different fields that can help you implement a new technique in the classroom or learn a new methodology for your research. Team titles roughly describe their expertise, but the examples of their current work may be a clearer picture of what they do. The team leader is bolded and listed first, and should serve as your first point of contact (though you are free to contact anyone listed in the team).

In no particular order, here are the teams:
