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.
Each year, the Academy will bring up to 150 traditional public, public-charter and independent school teachers and leaders to 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 then receive year-round mentoring 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.
