Curious about what’s cutting-edge in education, health and psychology? Teachers College is a good place to start. In 2018, TC faculty and students once again broke new ground in research and practice and led national debate on issues of the day, while, in an often polarized world, the College again stood apart as a convener of thoughtful, evidence-based discussion.
TC launched a center for the study of failure and a research collective on black education; hosted its 10th annual Academic Festival, which spotlighted the fields of education, health and psychology at a crossroads; and hosted conferences on the use of data mining to help school principals, the future of education anthropology, and advances in interactive learning.
Our faculty conducted groundbreaking studies of celiac disease and brain-based movement disorders, the future of human resources in companies and other organizations; the acquisition of second languages, the state of play in nutrition education; the impact of income levels on children's brain development; and much more.
TC faculty led national debate on issues that included immigration, gun violence, youth civic engagement, and political polarization.
The College’s faculty and administrators were honored by organizations that included the Association for Psychological Science, the American Association of Diabetes Educators, the National Council of Teachers of English, and the International Society for Developmental Psychobiology.
TC’s talented students served as key partners to our faculty and made their own significant contributions in fields ranging from music education to learning technology to countering the effects of climate change on crops in developing nations.
From Mary Swartz Rose and Lawrence Cremin to George Bond and Joan Gussow, the legacy of many of TC's greatest teacher-scholars is carried on through TC's tribute scholarships.
