Teaching Channel’s mission is to create an environment where teachers can watch, share, and learn new techniques to help every student grow.

We believe teachers should have opportunities to learn from each other… whenever they want; and teachers tell us that video has become essential to helping them see a broad range of approaches for working with students and for fostering self-reflection.

Join our free website or encourage your district to join Teaching Channel Teams, our interactive collaboration platform for professional learning. Our community is all about getting better together, through the use of video and tools designed for teachers. Our goal is to empower your growth, and that means your students will grow right along with you.

Teaching Channel's Theory of Professional Learning

Self reflection, analysis, practice and feedback are essential steps to mastery. Teaching Channel has resources to support your learning at every phase.

Analyze & Seek Feedback

Get feedback from colleagues. If you're on Teaching Channel Teams, private groups enable ongoing collaboration. It’s one of the most powerful professional learning tools to reflect on your teaching, student work, and to see evidence of your own progress.

Practice & Gather Evidence

Practice new techniques in your own classroom and videotape yourself. If you’re on Teaching Channel Teams, you can go even deeper by uploading that video or copies of student work to share and discuss with trusted colleagues.
