Overview:

The Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning (CTTL) is part of St. Andrew’s Episcopal School and provides research as well as on-going professional development related to Mind, Brain, and Education Science. While St. Andrew’s is a PreK-12 school, the resources provided are excellent for all educators across PK-12 and higher education as they relate to course design, teaching, and learning. CTTL has established partnerships with university researchers committed to enhancing teacher quality and student achievement. Additionally, CTTL works with public, charter, and international schools globally and connects teachers, leaders, and policy makers through translating research into teaching and learning strategies to support all learners. CTTL has an 8-member Advisory Board that includes renown leaders across education, the corporate sector, and government agencies. CTTL collaborates with Crimsonbridge Partnership, The Educators’ Lab, Johns Hopkins University, Q.E.D./Akom, Research Schools International, and Teach For America (DC Region).


Mission:

Elevate teacher effectiveness, student achievement, and the whole child’s school experience using the most promising research and strategies in Mind, Brain, and Education Science.


Vision: A world where every teacher understands how every student’s brain learns.


Optimize OLC Resources:

CTTL resources are extensive for both educators and administrators. Educators can complete the NeuroEducation Confidence Diagnostic, which is a free diagnostic assessment of teaching practices based on how the student brain learns. CTTL also provides the option for groups and organizations to receive a free group report in which all participants automatically receive an individual report. Educators and administrators can enroll in webinars, summer workshops, and the Science of Teaching and School Leadership Academy. The CTTL Research Base provides extensive resources to begin and expand your Mind, Brain, and Education journey. CTTL’s “Think Differently and Deeply” series is an excellent resource for educators at all levels since each volume includes topics that support student engagement and achievement, such as Going Big on Retrieval, Using Creative Writing to Improve Memory, The Science of Forgetting and the Art of Remembering, Metacognition Across Disciplines, Making it Stick Better, and more. Additionally, The Bridge is a monthly CTTL newsletter that takes a Mind, Brain, and Education Science research-informed lens to explore teaching and learning topics. Educators and administrators are encouraged to watch the webinars and listen to the podcasts in which Glenn Whitman, CTTL Executive Director and co-author of Neuroteach, and other educators discuss their work and research related to Mind, Brain, and Education Science. CTTL also has open-access articles related the Science of Learning and Mind, Brain, and Education Science. Neuroteach Global is another initiative in which CTTL is expanding professional development opportunities. Educators and administrators can learn more about the Neuroteach Global virtual learning micro-courses on the CTTL website.


CTTL provides many ways to get involved with the CTTL Community and to follow their work. Educators and administrators subscribe to receive emails with event alerts, resources, and articles from CTTL and Neuroteach Global. Additionally, CTTL is active on social media (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn). There are also opportunities to partner with CTTL. All Educators and administrators are encouraged to learn more about Mind, Brain, and Education Science through CTTL and outstanding resources provided to start and continue their journey.
