Welcome to the ESL – Content Teachers Collaborative (ECTC) at The Ohio State University!

The ECTC was a five-year, $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement and Academic Achievement for Limited English Proficient Students (OELA), that offered professional development for in-service secondary content and English-as-a-second-language (ESL) teachers throughout Ohio. The ECTC trained teachers in the knowledge base and skills to help them improve the academic achievement, literacy and English language development of Ohio’s more than 40,000 ESL students. The program offered workshops and graduate-level courses utilizing cutting-edge distance learning technology to reach participating teachers throughout the state.

The ECTC was housed in the Department of Teaching and Learning in the College of Education and Human Ecology at The Ohio State University. In Autumn 2012, the ECTC concluded its five-year program.  For more information about its history, please explore our web site, or contact us for more information.
