TRC 1SELF projects story

Welcome to the Teaching Resources Center & the SELF Design Studio

The Teaching Resources Center provides instructional materials, equipment, and services that support the students, faculty, and staff of the UNCG School of Education as well as teachers in the Triad community.

The TRC serves as a model school library media center, offering a large collection of picture books, young adult fiction, nonfiction books, audiobooks, board books, big books, kits, manipulatives and DVD’s. We also have professional resources useful in preparing lesson plans, teacher’s editions of state adopted textbooks, and Praxis study guides.

The SELF (Student Educator Learning Factory) Design Studio serves as a makerspace where School of Education faculty and students learn and create with hands-on resources and activities. Collaboration with area teachers and PK-12 students helps prepare pre-service teachers in becoming educational leaders who will engage students with innovative and creative learning models.
