History

The 数字的能力 Program first grew out of a collaboration between faculty and educational technologists designing digital course activities and assignments as part of an Andrew F. Mellon Foundation grant funded “Developing a Liberal Arts Curriculum for a Digital Age.” They recognized that such assignments and activities assumed or required certain digital skills, and began identifying them and developing assessments and scaffolding needed to ensure students’ success. 此后不久, the Board-level Digital Bryn Mawr Task Force charged 图书馆与资讯科技服务 (LITS) and the College more broadly with ensuring that students, 教师和员工发展所需的数字技能, teach, 研究, 生活和工作在数字时代, 美高美游戏官方网站开始了一个开发更全面框架的过程, 利用教员的反馈和先前的研究, staff, 最近的女毕业生/我, 董事会成员, 和学生.
