The scope of this research is to investigate the integration of TLE TeachLivE™ within higher education throughout the United States. The researcher explores the integration of TLE TeachLivE™, how educators identify and measure learning outcomes, and how feedback is given to and received from students in courses in which TLE TeachLivE™ is integrated. In order to determine how TLE TeachLivE™ is integrated, the researcher created and sent a survey to 41 institutions of higher education throughout the United States using TLE TeachLivE™. There were 39 participants who responded to the survey.

Data from the survey indicate that TLE TeachLivE™ is utilized in teacher preparation for: general education courses (i.e. Exploring Learning and Teaching, Teaching Diverse Learners, Teaching Strategies and Classroom Management) and special education courses (i.e. Curriculum and Instruction for Students with Mild/Moderate Disabilities, Nature of Autism: Theory and Application). In addition, TLE TeachLivE™ is being used for: administrators (Professional Development and Supervision), Bilingual/ESL programs (Bilingual Education Methods/ESL Methods), and counselors (Professional School Counseling).

Results indicate 33 out of 39 educators who utilize TLE TeachLivE™ identify student learning outcomes in which they use a variety of feedback formats to determine if learning outcomes have been met. Data show that 100% of educators who utilize TLE TeachLivE™ for multiple courses indicate that they identify specific student learning outcomes for their courses.
