Have questions about online teaching, Canvas, Zoom, or another instructional technology? Instructional design help is available by drop-in or appointment with DVC's Distance Education Team.
While the Staff Development Center building remains closed under social distancing guidelines, remote help is available through our Digital Learning Lab. Access drop-in support over Zoom on Mondays and Tuesdays, or make an individual appointment.
(CLOSED - will reopen Fall 2021) The Staff Development Center (AB-217) is divided into a lounge and lab that are both available as collaborative work spaces for staff. Campus Map
The lounge has two large meeting tables for group discussions and smaller work spaces for individuals. While this space is primarily available for impromptu staff work and collaboration, you can reserve this space for your needs through 25Live. (Max 21 people) Looking for a space to meet with students? For privacy reasons, faculty-student conferences are best held in faculty offices or by reserving a space in our Library Study Rooms.
The lab is a work space with four Macs, nine PCs, a scanner, phone, and printer. (Limit 10 pages. Please use the DVC Print Shop for larger jobs.) The lab is always available for drop-in users, but the overhead projector and some computers can be reserved through 25Live for small work groups and trainings. If you have a Canvas or instructional technology-related question that isn’t covered by a flex workshop, book an appointment or stop by the lab during our drop-in hours.
