Event description

Description

The Together, Learning and Collaborating (TLC), formerly Teachers, Learning and Collaborating, is a group format Practice-Based Coaching model for ongoing professional development. This approach can be used across different types of programs and age groups, including center-based, school-based, and home-based programs. The method pairs a small group of teachers with a trained facilitator who helps them use evidence-based strategies to improve children’s learning and development. Both teachers and facilitators are trained in a framework for understanding classroom quality, which gives them a shared understanding of the objectives of their work together.

TLC OVERVIEW:

Combines different types of coaching: expert (trained facilitator), peer (fellow participants), and self (participant) coaching.
In-person participant work groups led by trained facilitators, supported by independent classroom video recordings, and guided by group discussions on practices.
Focus on teaching practices using video recording, reflection, group and individual feedback.
