POTOMAC, M.D. (Jan. 21, 2021) – The Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning (CTTL) is proud to announce that Far Hills Country Day School is the first PK-8 school in the United States to become Level I credentialed by The CTTL in Mind, Brain, and Education Science through completion of all 12 Neuroteach Global micro-courses. 

Neuroteach Global is The CTTL’s web-based, self-paced professional learning platform that helps educators bring the science of learning into their classrooms. Its 12 micro-courses are centered on creating effective learning environments, curriculum design, pedagogy and assessment tools, and student success and well-being, all through a research-informed lens. 

The investment of Far Hills Country Day School’s leadership and faculty in integrating Mind, Brain, and Education Science in their professional development, and the inclusion of research-informed teaching practices, began several years ago. This accomplishment demonstrates their ongoing commitment to understanding how the student’s brain learns and, with that knowledge, to help their students realize their full potential. 

Next week, Far Hills will share their student success stories at an NJAIS Workshop. Click here to learn more about the session and register.
