The Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning: Bringing Mind, Brain, and Education Science to Teachers and the Classroom
Abner Oakes, Director of Outreach and Partnerships, Alliance for Excellent Education
Glenn Whitman, Director of the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning, St. Andrew’s Episcopal School
On January 12, 2017 the Alliance for Excellent Education held a webinar about the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning (CTTL) and had a conversation with its director Glenn Whitman, who is also the co-author of Neuroteach: Brain Science and the Future of Education.
Winner of the 2016 Mission award from the International Mind, Brain, and Education Society, CTTL is an innovative research and training center based at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland. It ensures that all teachers at St. Andrew’s receive training and ongoing annual professional development in mind, brain, and education science, and since its founding, it has served as a model and opportunity to learn for over 250 different schools and more than 3,000 teachers and leaders who have attended the center’s presentations, workshops, and programs.
During this webinar, Mr. Whitman talked about how CTTL is “a sterling example of how educators are informing the teaching and learning process through research-based practices” and its efforts to scale its work, particularly for public school teachers and their students.
Panelists also addressed questions from the live online audience. Conversations about the event were on Twitter at #ScienceofLearning.
