Event description

Description

In the spring of 2015, the CTTL received an Educational Leadership Grant from the E.E. Ford Foundation to design and launch the first of its kind Science of Teaching and School Leadership Academy. Now in its second year, the Academy seeks to continue its success as an innovative professional development opportunity for educators from traditional public, public-charter and independent schools.

We welcome you to join us for the Academy in the Washington, DC region for a five-day intensive, and fun, immersion into Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) Science research-informed teaching and learning. Academy participants will receive year-round mentoring after the workshop and must commit to participate in a longitudinal study designed by university researchers. The study will measure how the professional development experience of Academy participants impacts teacher efficacy, pedagogical practice, student achievement, and long-term commitment to the teaching profession. The work of the CTTL, and specifically the Academy, seeks to help teachers and school leaders to bring the growing body of educational neuroscience research into the design of their schools, classrooms, and work with each individual student so that one day, every students–regardless of zip code or school type—will learn and develop with the guidance of a teacher who knows the research behind how his or her brain works, learns, and changes.

PLEASE NOTE: To avoid the processing fee for online registration, you are encouraged to write a check for the original amount to the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning and mail your payment to Julia Dean, St. Andrew's Episcopal School 8804 Postoak Rd, Potomac, MD 20854.

REFUND POLICY: Upon email request, we will provide a full refund before May 15, 2018. If you realize that you cannot attend the Academy after May 15, you may email us to substitute another teacher/leader from your school or programs to attend before June 1. No refunds will be given after May 15, and no substitutions will be permitted after June 1. This policy is in place to maintain the Academy at full enrollment and allow us adequate time for preparation for the Academy week.

Contact Julia Dean (jdean@saes.org) to request a refund or substitution.
