The TELS Community brings university researchers together with middle school and high school educators to improve instruction in science. Established by the National Science Foundation as a national Center for Learning and Teaching, TELS is headquartered at the University of California, Berkeley, and is directed by Professor Marcia C.

The TELS Community includes research partners at thirteen universities, a nonprofit educational research and development organization, and fifteen school districts. TELS currently operates five National Science Foundation funded projects: Mentored and Online Development of Educational Leaders for Science (MODELS), Logging Opportunities in Online Programs for Science (LOOPS), Cumulative Learning using Embedded Assessment Results (CLEAR), Scaffolding Understanding by Redesigning Games for Education (SURGE), and Visualizing to Integrate Science Understanding for All Learners (VISUAL).
