Education Technologies

Digital Scholarship and Scholarly Communications

What is it?

Digital Scholarship and Scholarly Communications are interdisciplinary fields in librarianship that facilitate the production and dissemination of academic research through the use of emerging digital tools and applications, while enhancing the communication of and access to the results of this research.


Education Technologies are a key component of the Vanderbilt University Strategic Plan. By embracing these new technologies we foster innovation in learning, teaching, and discovery.

Education Technologies encompass a wide range of tools and techniques to support learning and teaching. We have taught sessions about using Minecraft, Wikipedia, Wordpress and other tools in the classroom. If you’re interested in trying out a new education technology, we’d be glad to help you explore the options. We offer weekly workshops, personalized tutorials, and support sessions.
