Mission: The Digital Learning Commons empowers the Monterey Institute community to achieve academic excellence, professional development, and digital media fluency. We accomplish this by providing students, faculty, and staff with training opportunities, technological resources, and a collaborative workspace to facilitate peer-driven teaching and learning.

Vision: To be a supportive environment where the Monterey Institute Community comes to push the limits of their ingenuity. The Digital Learning Commons envisions a thriving professional learning community that engages in creative risk-taking to design and implement innovative solutions.

Location: The Commons is located at McGowan 001, which you can reach by entering McGowan on Pacific Street and heading to the right (around the back of McGowan 102). You can also enter at 420 Calle Principal. The Commons is light, airy, spacious, and includes a fully equipped work space on the upper level as well as an open teaching and learning area called the Design or “D” Sp@ce.  Learn more about the D Sp@ce. If you’re interested in booking our Design Sp@ce, check the Room Reservation system. See the DLC Room Availability Calendar here.
