We build mindfully designed innovative solutions for a wide variety of problems that change behavior, enhance understanding, motivate exploration, and even create delight.

Digital Arts, Leadership, & Innovation Lab

Experiential Learning

At the DALI Lab, students have an experiential learning opportunity outside of the classroom.


Students at DALI learn to become 21st century leaders through hands-on projects where they build on classroom skills while learning new ones.


Problem Solving

Students define the problem, reframe it, and find solutions through an iterative process of brainstorming, designing, prototyping, and testing.

Real World Partners

Partners bring projects that fit with the Lab’s mission. Partners have included faculty, non-profits, government agencies, students, and startups.

How we work.

Small teams work collaboratively with partners on compelling projects.

Our Teams

Interdisciplinary undergraduates and graduates are designers, developers, and project managers in teams of 3-5. More Experienced students become mentors.


Our Process

We discover, design, develop, and deliver results.  We learn and iterate along the way.


Our Partners

Faculty, students, non-profits, corporations and individuals ask DALI to help them transform their ideas and wide variety of applications from web and mobile apps to games that influence decision making and 3D printed medical devices. 

Our Staff

DALI Staff provides support, workshops, and mentorship to lab members and to the Dartmouth Community.  We hold open lab hours every week where anyone who wants help with concept, development, design or delivery can get assistance.

I’ve learned different and more effective ways to solve a variety of problems. DALI has provided a much more cooperative working environment than projects for classes.

I’ve been really impressed with the team - they’ve been asking great questions, incorporating my feedback really well, and have demonstrated a really intuitive understanding of my business problems and come up with great solutions for them.
