What Is Teaching for Intellectual and Emotional Learning?
Teaching for Intellectual and Emotional Learning (TIEL) provides teachers, students, and parents with a deeper way of looking at teaching and learning. TIEL brings together fundamental intellectual processes and social-emotional components that form the core of effective teaching and learning for students in a 21st century world.
Post-pandemic education has brought new challenges to the classroom. Many students have fallen behind in their learning. Some show a lack of motivation, diminished interest, and lethargic effort. Teachers and university professors are being challenged to develop assignments and assessments that require students to do their own thinking and not rely on
ChatGPT to do the work. Today’s students need to be intellectually and emotionally involved and challenged to participate actively in their own learning.
The TIEL Curriculum Design Wheel helps educators balance the teaching of traditional subjects with the new basics that include intentional teaching of thinking and social emotional skills:
- Executive functions of planning, making decisions, and evaluation
- Sorting and sifting through unprecedented amounts of information
- Managing project work
- Thinking creatively and flexibly
- Appreciating diversity
- Working collaboratively
- Developing empathy
- Making ethical decisions
The TIEL Institute provides professional development for educators at all levels, tutoring support in reading and writing for students from elementary through university, and workshops for parents.
