Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education

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.

Target demographics: Educators in grades PreK-12

Direct beneficiaries per year: Hundreds of teachers attend TLC programs each year. This summer alone, TLC worked with over 350 teachers who will work with almost 10,000 students.

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!

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!!!

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!
