Teaching & Learning Collaborative

Rating: 4.9 stars   42 reviews

Address:

200 E. Wilson Bridge Rd. Worthington OH 43085 USA

Mission:

To provide innovative, high-quality professional development and support for preK-12 educators in mathematics, science, and technology.

Results:

TLC coordinates several professional development programs in mathematics and science. For the past six years, TLC has coordinated the statewide K-3 IMPACT program. IMPACT helps teachers develop instructional methods which provide all of their students with skills that will lead to future successes in STEM careers. K-3 IMPACT instruction is student-centered and develops the critical foundations in number sense, measurement and problem-solving. Many of the participating teachers are working in schools that serve a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students. Skills developed in this program lead to better intervention with these students so they have a solid mathematical understanding in the early grades. The intention of K-3 IMPACT is to lead to student success which is a shared goal of programs such as Closing the Achievement Gap. K-3 IMPACT was developed by a statewide group of mathematics leaders. It is managed by the Teaching & Learning Collaborative in partnership with Educational Service Centers and universities. To date, almost 400 different schools have participated in the first four years of IMPACT, represented by approximately 1,500 teachers. Eevaluation results have consistently demonstrated K-3 IMPACT's value as a strong well-received professional development experience for K-3 teachers. Results have shown that K-3 IMPACT participants have made statistically significant gains in mathematics content knowledge and improved instructional techniques.

I have had an amazing experience with the TLC group and their IMPACT program. I have teamed up with them to deliver high quality math professional development for elementary teachers. Every session is well planned and expertly produced. The availability of the team for guidance is unmatched. They are amazing!!!!

A practical approach to teaching. Every class I've taken with T & L has helped me be a better teacher. They focus on content and address the over arching goals that parallel our standards I've shared lessons with colleagues and they too find it invaluable.

Throughout the last 5 years I have attended several professional development opportunities offered by the Teaching and Learning Collaborative. All of them have provided beneficial and relevant experiences that have improved my understanding of current best practices in education. The staff is made up of passionate and dedicated educators who make these experiences very engaging and worthwhile. I utilize this valuable training, on a daily basis, in my role as a K-6 Instructional Coach.

I have taken workshops with the group. All that they provide is current, research-based PD. The facilitators are outstanding getting us to stretch our thinking and learning. Math PD is what I typically attend. There is very little PD in elementary ed that is centered around Common Core, so their IMPACT workshops, Pre-K Counts, K-5 Structures are amazing and timely!

I have worked with TLC since 2005. I have helped them with mathematics education by serving on advisory boards and rewrite committees. If you are looking for the most current information on mathematics and science education, this is the place to get your training! They use the most current research to create workshops. The focus is always on building teacher's content knowledge. Absolutely the best group to get your latest and greatest on Ohio's New Learning Standards!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hire more people to do more workshops asap! :) More money is needed by this organization in order to make this happen. Please, donors, donate!

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of advisors?

Definitely

Personally, NFTI has been a catalyst in allowing me the opportunity to become a science facilitator. It is a role I never considered for myself but I have discovered I enjoy it very much.

The staff at TLC has been great! They are very supportive and have taught me how to be a great facilitator. They are always prompt in responding to questions and/or problems. I have not only enjoyed working with them, but have become a much better math facilitator as a result of all of their hard work!

I have worked with this organization for over 15 years and through two different directors. It has maintained high quality services and high quality people throughout the time I have known the organization. Though located in Columbus, OH, they continue to support our rural county on the far west edge of the state. They communicate well, share resources, and create outstanding professional development/training. I know the staff personally and would recommend their services to anyone.

Seven years ago I attended my first TLC professional development learning opportunity, which forever changed my instructional practices in the classroom and who I am as an educator. Since then I have attended every professional learning opportunity they have provided. At each session my knowledge of math/science content and instruction continue to grow! The math and science professional development offered by TLC is high quality, innovative, and rigorous. Professional development through the Teaching & Learning Collaborative provides teachers with numerous resources, activities, ideas, and collaboration opportunities to support learning and new ideas. TLC fosters professional development that is relevant to current educational initiatives and research. The Teaching & Learning Collaborative, definitely knows how to “hook” teachers in making instructional shifts to best meet the needs of students! Once you go to one PD….you will go to all! ☺

After being introduced to TLC and working with them as part of a collaborative project, I am impressed with the level of expertise and excitement in providing quality professional development for educators. I have thoroughly enjoyed developing our current PD as well as our stimulating conversations on STEM and literacy education. And I can not leave out all the laughter and FUN we had doing it! I hope to continue my relationship with TLC and look forward to working together in the future. This group is STELLAR!
