Humanities Learning Center
The Humanities Learning Center (HLC) is a group of dedicated faculty working alongside administrative, support staff, and community partners whose mission is to bring the relevance and vitality of the humanities to the Great Lakes Bay Region. This group is coordinated by Dr. Amy French, Assistant Professor of History. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (989) 686-9132.
The humanities may be best described as the study of the human experience. Through exploration of history, philosophy, literature, film/theater, religion, art, music, languages, politics, and law, we are offered a deeper understanding of ourselves and others. Knowledge of the human experience inspires us by allowing us to connect to the greatest minds and talents of the ages. So go ahead—know thyself—and open up a world of inspiration and wonder.

Thank you for your support!
THATCamp (The Humanities and Technology Camp) coming to Delta on Monday, August 22 from 10-2
The Humanities Learning Center at Delta College invites all professors and other interested educators to join us for THATCamp (The Humanities and Technology Camp) on Monday, August 22, 2016. THATCamp allows beginners, novices, and experts to join together to determine what they want to learn and to share what they know with others. It is an unconference—humanists and technologists of all skill levels propose subjects on the spot that they would like to know more about or they give ideas that they would like to share. Have a cool assignment that integrates digital tools? Come share. Would like to learn how to use digital tools in your classroom? Come ask. There are no passive observers—come and ask questions, share advice, and get inspired! Best of all...it is free professional development.
We will begin our day at 10 am inside the Delta College Library. Please bring laptops or tablets.
There is no fee to attend, but you must register by August 1. Registration is available at: http://deltacollege2016.thatcamp.org/
