Macaulay students will tell you there’s a huge difference between a class with a Teaching and Learning Collaboratory Fellow (TLC) and one without. The TLC has fellows who are doctoral candidates as well as a postdoctoral program. All TLC fellows are experienced teachers who can help you get the most out of your Macaulay seminars, instructional technology, and experiences. TLC’s work with you and your professors to create educational experiences that help you think deeply about new ideas and put you in control of technology and your digital identity.
Using technology to accelerate teaching and learning.
In 1795 instructional technology included the newly-invented pencil. Today it’s digital maps, geographic information systems, video and other multimedia presentation tools, gaming, databases and archives.
Instructional technology inspires creativity in students, provides more access to information and helps them hone their ideas and their work.
Academic Bonds, Professional Relationships
Macaulay Teaching and Learning Collaboratory Fellows are a highly-regarded and tight knit group. They are dedicated to sharing technical knowledge and inspiring students to stronger, more relevant work.
TLC’s maintain frequent and direct contact with students, often working with them over the span of their academic career. They provide mentorship, references and referrals in addition to academic guidance.
