The Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) is a place where experts in technology, library sciences, and education work together under one roof to support the work of the Davidson community of scholars—from first-year students to tenured professors. The center is located in the renovated E.H. Little Library with a satellite tutoring location in the South basement of Chambers.

Upcoming Events

Throughout the year the center offers events, presentations, seminars, and workshops that explore innovations in communication and technology and the ways they affect teaching and learning. From new ideas to best practices, we’re here to help you stay at the forefront.
