The John Crosland Jr. Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) provides faculty with resources to explore teaching tools, hone methods or develop new pedagogies to challenge students.

Our facilities and location in the E.H. Little Library provide a rich, synergistic environment for exploring the latest classroom technologies and information services to enhance teaching at Davidson. The CTL staff pools pedagogical resources and works with faculty to create learning opportunities.

The CTL supports Davidson College’s commitment to academic excellence by fostering a vibrant and engaged community.

Reserve a Room

All the Study/Quiet rooms in the Library and CTL have been added to the LibCal scheduling tool, allowing students to reserve directly.

QR codes are posted outside each room so all can scan with their phone, see the schedule and make reservations on site/know if someone else has reserved.

You can also scan the code and show that you have a reservation if someone is in the room when you arrive.

When not reserved, rooms are available on a first-come, first served basis.

If you have questions, contact Mariana Gomez ( or Ann Fletcher (
