Teachers College Digital Futures Institute (DFI) is an interdisciplinary hub for digital innovation, with a mission to advance more just social futures that is driven by research, pedagogy, and public engagement.
DFI builds upon a strong legacy of innovation at Teachers College, beginning with The College’s very founding on principles of equity and justice. Over the past several decades, Teachers College has continued to innovate in its technology landscape, with one eye on meeting community needs and another eye focused on innovation just past the horizon. DFI holds these commitments together under a dual mandate of Service and Scholarship.
Our teams work together to provide continued excellence in course design, media creation, curating and designing immersive learning experiences, training and access to instructional and research software, and other needs that arise. DFI’s menu of services will continue to evolve in response to institutional needs and capacity.
