4. Emergent Technologies & TeachLIVE

TWU was the first university in Texas to offer TeachLive, which offers the chance to practice teaching and classroom management techniques and strategies in a safe environment.

There are also bilingual avatars that allow you to practice using ESL strategies. For those wanting to be a Bilingual Teacher, this is a great opportunity to practice academic Spanish.

Opportunities Include:

  • Instructional Strategies
  • Classroom Management
  • ESL Strategies

Why adult avatars? This gives you chances to work with parents, creating a great way to expand your knowledge of working with adults and children in a structured setting to improve your practice before you go into the classroom.

5. Engagement Outside the Classroom

TWU offers many opportunities to engage with children, parents, and learning opportunities outside the TWU classroom.
