“Because Exceptional Teachers Know How the Brain Learns”

Dear Educators, 

The Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning promotes innovative, research-driven teaching that develops each student’s potential as a learner. At its core, the CTTL believes that exceptional teachers know how the brain learns. Every CTTL workshop places research from the leading neuroscientists in the country, from schools such as Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Stanford, and the University of Virginia, into the hands of every workshop attendee. More importantly, each workshop models how to transfer research to the classroom where it can validate, inform, and transform curriculum design and work with each student. So grab a colleague and expand your teaching brain and instructional practices so that you can develop a new lens in which to help all of your students be better understood, supported, and challenged as learners.
