Professional Learning and Resources for Educators

PROFESSIONAL LEARNING PATHWAY

Fulfilling Tiger’s vision to impact more students around the world, TGR Foundation introduces the Professional Learning Pathway, providing educators with interactive trainings and resources focused on inquiry and student-centered learning.

WHAT IS THE PROFESSIONAL LEARNING PATHWAY?

The Professional Learning Pathway is intended for all educators, traditional, informal, STEM focused and non-STEM focused, working with youth in grades 4-12. With the goal of improving student learning outcomes, educators will:

  • Develop a learning environment that fosters questioning, reflection and application.
  • Collaborate with peers to foster innovation and better connect student empowerment to teaching.
  • Shift practice from teacher centered to student centered.
  • Create environments that better prepare youth for modern career paths.

VIRTUAL STEM STUDIO

A hallmark of our program, Virtual STEM Studio (VSS) continues to be the robust training option for teachers to incorporate inquiry into their teaching practice. The Professional Learning Pathway provides four distinct VSS courses for educators to expand their knowledge of inquiry:

  • Level 1 – Inquiry Mindset
  • Level 2 – Aligning Assessment to Inquiry
  • Level 3 – Designing Inquiry Environments
  • Level 4 – Instilling an Entrepreneurial Mindset

Micro-Credentials and Certification

Educators will receive a micro-credential for each VSS course they complete as well as an Inquiry Educator Certificate upon sequential completion of all four VSS courses. Certification is subject to educators not only participating in all courses but also completing an implementation project where student outcomes are assessed due to the incorporation of inquiry methods in their classroom.
