How TOC Seminars Matter

TOC Interns must attend at minimum, THREE seminars per semester, Throughout each semester, several seminars take place which provide participants with opportunities for professional development (PD).

  • PD's offer a way for people to assess their own skills and abilities, consider aims in life, which are needed to actively set action steps to grow and realize your true potential.
  • PD's are all about building your skill set and knowledge base for your field. So the TOC hosted and exclusive events, give emerging teachers a space to learn from experts and apply new knowledge and skills without the pressure of grades.
  • PD's can help to expand and mature TOC scholars' teaching practice, to best serve school children and communities served during internships well in advance of student teaching, and also competitively position TOC graduates among hiring employers.
