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!!!!
Teaching and Learning Collaborative provides so many outstanding professional development opportunities for teachers all across Ohio. One of these opportunities is NFTI- using non-fiction text through inquiry in all Science content areas. This is a great PD that shifts the paradigm from telling students what they should know to allowing them to discover it (and more) through the 5E learning cycle. As a NFTI facilitator, I'm proud to share this paradigm shift with other educators. I see them implement it in the classroom where the impact is huge!
These educators have a passion for supporting teachers which ultimately positively impacts student engagement and achievement. I love the Pi Day race to support this program!
The Teaching & Learning Collaborative has helped me to enhance my teaching. I have changed the way in which I teach and my students love the innovative and exciting lessons and I feel it has made me a better teacher.
The Teaching and Learning Collaborative has provided incredible support for teachers in the Colimbus Ohio area. This resource is critical for elementary educators who traditionally are not as confident and competent in the areas of math and science. Professional development sessions, resource availability and enthusiastic leaders made my job easier and made me a stronger teacher.
Innovative, cutting edge, yet practical professional development is what you get with TLC. Their programs help teachers build content knowledge while implementing research based pedagogy. Once participants experience professional development with TLC, many come back for more! In addition, the folks at TLC genuinely care about the participants and helping each one develop their craft of teaching.
The Teaching & Learning Collaborative has made exceptional professional development available to teachers for years. They understand the needs of teachers and develop professional development that is practical and realistic to meets the needs of a variety of learners. My students have been postively impacted by NFTI and Science Works. This is just two of the valuable pd's that I have attended ( there are any more). The Teaching & Learning Collaborative is what a non-profit should be about - amazing, maginificent and invaluable in it's contribution to education!!!
The NFTI program continues to prove to be fantastic integration with informational text and science!!!
Amazing, talented staff who provide high-quality, meaningful professional development. They are making real change in STEM teaching and learning in Central Ohio.
This is one of the best PD groups around! They model lessons, strategies and pedagogy that is immediately applicable in the classroom. TLC staff are creative, passionate and committed to helping improve teaching and learning, plus all their sessions are fun! As an elementary administrator, I wouldn't hesitate to send my staff to any PD sessions with the TLC organization.
TLC is an amazing organization that offers great professional development opportunities. Kelly, Renee, and Anita are well organized, efficient, and knowledgeable. They understand the time constraints and challenges of teachers and offers practical, beneficial and meaningful PD. After a TLC PD session, I always feel energized and can't wait to get back to my classroom and share what I have learned with my students!
Amazing group of leaders! This group is and will continue to empower educators around the state. What they are doing is truly inspiring!
Teaching & Learning Collaborative has changed the way I think about teaching! I am a better teacher because of NFTI Science!
Great PD and very useful for our classrooms! We have. Even given many resources and are learning new things. Even veteran teachers have benefitted.
An incredibly dedicated team and organization. My organization partners with TLC frequently, and their work is impeccable and their passion incredibly apparent to all!
With the Teaching & Learning Collaborative, I have attended, by far, the best professional development of my teaching career. The consultants continue to keep in touch and answer questions even when you're not in their office. Their dedication for helping educators and students is evident in their words and actions. I've become a better teacher from working with them.
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!
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 Teaching and Learning Collaborative has provided professional development to the teachers in my district for over three years now. Their focus on providing high quality professional development in mathematics and the sciences sets them apart from other resources that we have access to in our area. The staff is knowledgeable, professional, and receptive to feedback. Every time one of our teachers attends their professional development they leave appreciative of the time they spent and motivated to apply the new learning in their classroom. The Teaching and Learning Collaborative have also provided a wonderful venue for collaboration between our district and others in the region. Our district will continue to use the Teaching and Learning Collaborative in a variety of capacities for many years to come!
