What We Do

Since 1999, the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning (CCNMTL) has worked with over 3,000 faculty members and created over 150 advanced digital learning environments. Among these are projects that support cultural diversity, social justice, and environmental sustainability. Triangle Initiative projects build on a wealth of experience in reinventing education for the digital age.

The Center is committed to the purposeful use of technology in education. The Center's staff includes approximately 40 members from a broad range of educational backgrounds and professional experience. A team of over a dozen educational technologists (ETs), grounded in pedagogical theory and practice, directly supports Columbia faculty members interested in working with new media technology in their teaching. The ETs draw on the expertise of the Center's teams of Web developers, computer programmers, graphic designers, and video specialists to execute projects and provide services to faculty.

CCNMTL's work has been recognized and supported by significant grants from the National Institute of Mental Health, the Centers for Disease Control, the National Science Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Knight Foundation.
