Center for Teaching & Learning

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.

Microaggression and Stereotype Threats in the Classroom
April 15, 2014 | 11:05am-12:05pm | Sprinkle Room (Union)

Have you ever wondered why the only minority student in your class hesitates to be the spokesperson for their race? This is one example of how microaggression may impact student performance in the classroom.

A panel of four members of the Davidson Black Alumni Network (DBAN) will reflect on their experiences as minority students at Davidson and will discuss how they responded to, internalized, and overcame the effects of racial stereotypes and microaggressions.   They will share personal examples and illustrate how comments, situations, and interactions planted doubts in their minds about their intellectual ability, potential for success at Davidson, and possible career trajectories.  We hope you will be able to come to this thought provoking discussion.
