CTTL Director & Head of Research Once Again Published In Academic Journal

Written by St. Andrew's Communications Staff

For the second time this week, St. Andrew’s teachers have published a paper in a prestigious academic journal. Dr. Ian Kelleher and Glenn Whitman had a paper accepted by the academic journal Mind, Brain, and Education.

Kelleher, the director of research for the Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning (CTTL), and Whitman, the director of the CTTL, also co-authored an article for Impact, a U.K. journal of the Chartered College of Teaching. That piece was published earlier this week.

Kelleher and Whitman’s article in Mind, Brain, and Education is titled “A Bridge No Longer Too Far: A Case Study of One School’s Exploration of the Promise and Possibilities of Mind, Brain, and Education Science for the Future of Education.”The six-page paper discusses St. Andrew’s journey, along with the CTTL, in becoming a model for integrating MBE Science into the pedagogy of the St. Andrew’s faculty and how other schools can replicate the model.

Mind, Brain, and Education is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal established in 2007 by Kurt Fischer of Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, the founding president of the International Mind, Brain, and Education Society. It is rare for Mind, Brain, and Education, or any journal for that matter, to publish a paper authored by teachers without university collaborators.
