TATI provides Professional Development for Teaching Artists, built on high supports and high expectations, so that teachers are equipped to guide students’ learning, based on critical educational philosophies and strategies.

The TATI domains of learning are designed to ensure Teaching Artists can think critically about the preparation needed to work with students (the what), the execution of this work in the classroom (the how) and the reflection each person must undertake to continue strengthening their teaching practice.
