I’d like to extend a warm Davidson welcome to the newest member of our team, Zara Rao. As a Digital Learning Fellow on the Digital Learning team, Zara will support digital learning programming, consult with faculty on instructional design needs, help to develop our consultant training program, and more.
Zara is a New Jersey native and a recent graduate of Davidson College where she majored in Political Science. Before joining the Digital Learning Team, she was an intern with the IT department at Brother International Corporation. There, she worked on the help desk and security teams, providing technology support and writing policy. She also volunteered at her local library in Princeton, where she helped design and run youth programming and served as an honorary board of trustees member. Zara is excited to be back working in librarianship, bringing her experience working with technology to Davidson.
Zara is passionate about scented candles and sit-coms. In her free time, you might find her chucking plastic on the disc golf courses at Bradford and Bailey Road Parks. She also enjoys going on walks around Davidson’s campus, practicing yoga, cooking comfort food, and exercising her creativity as an amateur photographer. Ask her about political philosophy or ice hockey if you want to start a conversation!
We are so glad that you have joined us, Zara. Welcome to the team!
