Media Creation

DFI collaborates with Teachers College faculty to create and support the creation of media for use in pedagogy and research. Together we produce original podcasts and video series, support multimodal research, and provide trainings and resources to help faculty grow their use of media.

Podcast Series

DFI partners with Teachers College podcasters through the co-production of original series, partnership and training with campus collaborators, and access to audio production space and equipment at our Macy Studios podcasting station. Below are podcasts either co-produced or supported by DFI.

Featured Episode

From Professors Nathan Holbert and Haeny Yoon, Pop and Play is a podcast that asks educators, researchers, parents and kids to take play seriously. But not too seriously! The hosts and guests play games, talk pop culture and get theoretical and practical about play in education and beyond.

How's School

The truth is, we care about our young people, dare we say, even worry about them. But staying connected to their world and all the complexity they navigate can be a real challenge. The issues we look at include education, health, and psychology, but at the core is their well-being. And our ability to face things that impact them without losing heart.
