Teacher Research and Documentation Center

The Teacher Research and Documentation Center (TRDC) is a laboratory designed to educate teachers as researchers, promote critical thinking, and generate knowledge about how children learn. The integration and implementation of research and practice in the field is the cornerstone of inquiry-oriented teacher practice. The TRDC is a place for students and teachers to utilize technology and access mentoring in order to develop research skills that inform and guide practice.
