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.
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.
Teaching & Learning Collaborative has changed the way I think about teaching! I am a better teacher because of NFTI Science!
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 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.
The staff at Teaching & Learning Collaborative goes above and beyond to support schools and teachers. They are passionate about math & science. I know that I can always count on them to provide quality professional development to our teachers.
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!
Over the years, TLC has consistently provided high-quality professional development in mathematics and science. Their workshops engage teachers to deepen both content and pedagogical knowledge. Teachers leave prepared to apply this knowledge in the classroom to benefit their students. TLC has had a tremendous impact on my professional career and I appreciate all I have learned - and continue to learn - from them!
