Student Affiliates help the center to advance the work and sustain the values described on our home page. They play a key role in helping faculty, staff, and other students expand their understanding of digital tools for learning, scholarship, and creative expression.
In 2020-21, CDL student affiliates helped lead Geneseo faculty, students, and other stakeholders in discussions about the role of digital learning at the institution. Going forward into our second year, the CDL plans on continuing this work as in-person capacity increases. Furthermore, the center will be offering hands-on support for faculty, staff, and students, which our Student Affiliates will be actively involved in.
