From Theory to Practice

Our clinical faculty, master teachers with extensive classroom experience, connect theory to practice by integrating the following:

    • Student-centered learning
    • Strategies to ensure equitable instruction
    • Authentic assessment analysis and development
    • Pedagogically effective uses of a wide variety of technological tools

We work with local educators to best identify and assess areas in which targeted teacher training or curricular development will most improve teacher and student performance.

Customization

Our program delivers quality pedagogical content based on local assessments and the educational, social, and cultural needs of our local clients. UTGI training modules can be delivered as stand-alone workshops, reordered to create different modules, and expanded or compressed to fit client needs. We work with each client's assessed needs and programmatic objectives to customize the  content, length, and style of our training presentations. UTGI teacher trainings may take place at a host institution, online, or in Austin, Texas.
