TGR EDU: Create
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.
Registration for TGR Foundation’s annual professional development training, STEM Studio is now open and FREE for educators in the summer of 2022. In addition to interactive training and valuable resources, the training will provide a meal voucher, $50 gift card for school supplies, a chance to win raffle prizes, access to a micro-credential and more!
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) is a robust training option for educators to incorporate inquiry into their teaching practice. The Professional Learning Pathway provides four distinct VSS workshops for educators to expand their knowledge of inquiry:
- Inquiry 1 – Inquiry Mindset
- Inquiry 2 – Making Inquiry Learning Visible
- Inquiry 3 – Developing an Inquiry Environment
- Inquiry 4 – Instilling an Entrepreneurial Mindset
Micro-Credentials and Certification
Educators will have the opportunity to receive a micro-credential for each VSS workshop 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 workshops but also completing an independent project where student outcomes are assessed due to the incorporation of inquiry methods in their classroom.
