This course teaches neurologically-based approaches to instruction, using recent research to support and develop improved teaching strategies. Teachers will examine the latest research concerning how the brain constantly searches for meaning and seeks patterns and connections. Educators will view a DVD that reveals how the sectors of the brain function together in the learning process, which will lead to the development of neurologically-based curriculum. Teachers will write a culminating essay or develop lessons or activities for the classroom to demonstrate their knowledge of using recent research to help students retain and apply information.
Teacher’s Learning Center (TLC) has been offering graduate courses for teachers for over 9 years (through Colorado State University at Pueblo & previously North Dakota State University).
The founder and head instructor, Joseph C’de Baca M.Ed. began holding the classes on location in the Denver-metro area. Mr. C’de Baca has 15 consecutive years of full time classroom teaching experience in Denver Public Schools. He began TLC by offering his own originally created courses on the topics of Hispanic students and issues.
Over the past 9 years the courses have been transitioned into independent-study correspondence format. Additionally, the course offerings have since expanded to include other practical and relevant topics for the modern classroom.
K12 teachers nation-wide earn post-baccalaureate professional development credit from TLC's accrediting sponsor Universities. TLC courses have been taken by K12 educators in all 50 states, and also other territories such as Guam and US Military bases overseas.
