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, 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.

-Dr. Michael de Miranda, Dean of The College of Education and Human Development 

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 Stevie Wallace, I am a Junior here at Texas A&M. I am originally from Arlington, Texas. My major is ELA & History Education for middle grades. I am hoping to get my Masters in Child Development and become a school counselor. 

Some of my interests include my two dogs, sports, and reading. My favorite book that I have read recently is Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. I also love to travel! The last place I went to was Breckenridge, Colorado where I climbed my first mountain!

I look forward to helping my peers in whatever ways I can. I enjoyed taking this course and believe that it is important to understand the influence that technology has in our classrooms. As well as the best ways to incorporate technology into a classroom. Let’s have a great semester!
