The Technology in Learning Center, or the TLC, exists to support Samford employees using classroom technology to enhance teaching and learning across the university. We can help you arrange a short-term loan for a piece of computer equipment, help you to digitize your slides, and more. If you need help with classroom technology, feel free to reach out to us.
We are located on the lower level of Davis Library, room 014 and are open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome; however, if you need to speak with a technician, please call 205-726-2662 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment.
The TLC staff are available to support classroom technology. If you need help with technology in a classroom or would like to meet with someone before you teach in a specific classroom, please call us at 205-726-2662 or email us at email@example.com.
