About the Digital Medial CoLab

Mission Statement

Digital Media CoLab

The Digital Media CoLab (CoOperative Laboratory) looks to create an agile and responsive environment for both well-defined and supportable needs as well as innovative projects where the goals or outcomes are not as well-defined. The mantra for the DMcL will be “Support and Innovate”. The concept behind the Digital Media CoLab has its roots in the NYC CoLab as well as a more modern definition of individual collaboration or a collaboratory.


  • Support faculty with their digital media needs for teaching and research
    • support for digital media needs: graphics, photo, video, etc
    • support for current and future projects with well-defined needs
    • support for innovative projects or efforts with less well-defined goals
  • Utilize design thinking (define, ideate, prototype, test, reflect, repeat), principles of good learning design, and Schon’s reflective practice (reflection-in-action, reflection-on-action) as a foundation for advising and supporting the DMcL’s projects
  • Create a hybrid workspace, designed to help student prepare for a fast-changing, rapidly-growing highly digital, distributed/remote/hybrid workforce
