This website is designed to make findable a variety of resources on digital tools, projects, and pedagogies for the 2020-2021 academic year and beyond. It houses how-to articles, project ideas, workshop resources, and tech kit info.

If you’re looking for big picture resources on resilient course design, visit the Responsive Teaching, Learning, and Working. It’s like the librarian in the library: it’ll help you dig in, and direct you from there.

If you’re looking for something about a specific tool, or want to explore options around a particular teaching practice, this is the site for you. It’s like the stacks in the library. You can use the menu above, along with categories and tags, to find both quick overviews and deep dives.

Feeling overwhelmed? The Getting Started page will help to steer you in the right direction.

The Technology and Pedagogy working group is gathering stories, tips, and advice from Macalester faculty to share both on the Serie Center Twitter account and on this website. If you would like to submit an article to share with your colleagues, please reach out to Aisling Quigley (aquigley@macalester.edu) or Brooke Schmolke (bschmolk@macalester.edu)!
