TEACH! Learning Communities are designed to bring first-year Teacher Education students together through academics, professional development, and social activities. Both the Elementary and Secondary TEACH! Learning Communities will take their first Professional Education course, Introduction to Educational Technology and Computing, together, as well as an additional class. Fun extracurricular activities will be co-planned by students and instructors, providing opportunities for information, learning, and interaction. Classes in the past have exciting learning activities and games they were able to use with school children outside of the classroom setting. A residence option is available for all TEACH! students.

"Joining a Learning Community is an experience of a lifetime. It takes a gigantic campus and brings it down to a familiar level, making the transition to college easy and smooth, all the while providing opportunities throughout campus to enhance your college career and make it a lively and fun experience. Not only will you walk away with an immense amount of knowledge that is hard to grasp outside of a Learning Community, but the friends you make while involved can be amazing."
