THE DEPARTMENT OF TEACHING, LEARNING & CULTURE


Teaching, Learning and Culture (TLAC) encompasses students, faculty and staff whose efforts and interests center on the many different aspects of academics, teaching and classroom education. TLAC’s mission is to create experiences that advance teaching, research and service through the application of knowledge in the preparation and development of quality educators; placing high value on collaboration, diversity, critical thinking, creativity, democratic governance and global leadership.

Having two highly-ranked graduate programs within one department serves as an index of the world-class academic programs and faculty who are committed to a culture of excellence in research and discovery, and the scholarship of teaching.

FROM OUR FORMER STUDENTS


“One of the things that set this program apart is that it is located within the Teaching, Learning & Culture Department at Texas A&M. There’s more to teaching than just delivering a curriculum or instructional strategy; we have to consider the influence that culture has one what we do.”

Howdy! My name is Hannah Bernett, and I am a proud member of the fightin’ Texas Aggie class of 2022! I am from Richardson, TX, just north of Dallas. I am a 4-8 ELA/Social Studies major, and I am excited to one day teach middle school social studies and make history come to life for my students! 

I love iced coffee and have tried nearly every coffee shop in town! I am a volunteer with Breakaway ministries and spend most of my time serving or hanging out with friends from my volunteer team. I have also worked as a summer camp counselor for middle school girls the last three summers, which is a huge passion of mine.

My favorite part of EDCI 365 is creating videos in different programs, or learning about new tech tools! This is my fourth semester as an undergraduate peer mentor in technology, and I am excited to continue learning from the students I am with!
