The Tulsa Area Professional Development Consortium, The Eighth Floor, supports collaboration which nurtures and sustains educational improvement within the community. The Eighth Floor takes advantage of the diversity and expertise of instructors from a wide variety of disciplines, grade-levels, and institutions to develop a community of self-directed, life-long learners. Participants have the unique opportunity to improve constructivist classroom practices through development of technology skills and collaboration with peers. The Eighth Floor provides professional development for all educators.
In 1995, education and business leaders had a vision...creating a professional development center for Tulsa County educators. Soon after, the group formed the Tulsa Professional Development Consortium. The TPDC was born as a collaborative effort of the public schools, higher education institutions, and the career technology schools.
In 1998, the vision became The Eighth Floor...a technology and learning center for educators” which focuses on the integration of technology in the classroom and the promotion of effective instructional strategies. Activities on the Eighth Floor are overseen by an advisory committee which is chaired by The Eighth Floor Corrdinators. Each participating consortium member has a representative on the advisory committee.
The Eighth Floor is owned and operated by Tulsa Technology Center and Tulsa Community College. Currently, The Eighth Floor serves over 9,000 educators in the surrounding Tulsa area.
Providing educators with professional development opportunities focusing on practical technology integration is our mission. We are here to meet member needs and enhance learning for all.
