TD4Ed Professional Development Offering
The version of TD4Ed that you’re looking at is hosted online, and teams of teachers can self-facilitate their journey through the curriculum’s phases, activities, and resources. But did you know that TD4Ed was created through a series of pilot programs with teachers in Rhode Island, Chicago, and Philadelphia? Instead of completing the curriculum online in a self-facilitated model, the educators in these pilot programs were involved in a blended version with in-person workshops facilitated by BIF staff.
Check out what some of the teachers involved in the blended TD4Ed pilot program had to say about their experience:
I know that this is a process I will use in my own teaching both in and out of the classroom. You’ve all taught me a new, invaluable skill that I will be using moving forward. — Teacher from the Rhode Island pilot
Over the course of our challenge, we tapped into our own experiences and sought out others who wanted to [be part of developing a solution]. We learned so much, and as we moved through the design thinking process, our passion for our project grew. — Teacher from the Chicago pilot
Blended TD4Ed-based professional development trainings for schools and districts?
We currently facilitate a variety of TD4Ed workshops at conferences, schools, and networks, but we are exploring what it would look like for BIF’s Student Experience Lab to offer blended TD4Ed-based professional development trainings for schools and districts.
If you are a teacher who would like to go through the TD4Ed curriculum as part of an in-person PD offering, or if you are an administrator looking to incorporate TD4Ed into your school or district’s PD plan, please provide us with the following information so we can gauge interest.
Thanks, and we’ll be in touch!
