The DMC recognizes that students are hungry for information but have different preferences about the style and content of their learning experience. We offer an array of learning tools and presentation styles to accommodate the needs of our users.

Workshops

Each fall and spring semester, the DMC offers a series of non-credit workshops on a variety of topics. Workshops are generally one to two hours, hands-on sessions that provide an overview of a particular piece of hardware, software or equipment, or a set of tips and techniques in a particular discipline or medium. DMC workshops are free and open to the entire JHU community, although preference is given to fill-time students on the Homewood campus.

Lab Coaches

The DMC employs a team of student Lab Coaches to work one-on-one with lab users in such areas as learning new skills and techniques, becoming authorized to use sophisticated DMC equipment, project planning and troubleshooting. Lab Coaches are extremely skilled and experienced in their specialty area and are well-suited to peer-to-peer guidance and training.

Call 410-516-3817 or stop in to the DMC to schedule a lab coach.
