Register for the Live Webinar (September 23 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM EDT)
the On-Demand Opportunity (available September 24 – November 23, 2021).
Each student’s academic, social, and emotional recovery and acceleration out of disrupted school experiences because of COVID requires highly skilled and adaptive teachers who know the science behind how the brain learns. Now more than ever, all students deserve teachers and school leaders who know the science behind how their brains learn, work, change, and thrive.
In this webinar
- discover the most promising research and strategies in the science of teaching and learning,
- explore strategies that support students’ academic, social and emotional development,
- discuss various pathways to begin or elevate an entire school or district’s use of the science of learning to inform and transform instructional design and the whole child’s school experience, and
- experience how the internationally recognized CTTL (Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning) is transforming the delivery of professional learning.
This webinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, instructional specialists, professional development coordinators, and deans of faculty, and will be led by Glenn Whitman, Executive Director of the internationally recognized CTTL (Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning).

The CTTL is the leading pre-collegiate, teacher-led, school-based research center in the United States designing and delivering research-informed professional development programming on Mind, Brain and Education (MBE) science around the world. The CTTL is a non-profit organization serving teachers and school leaders in public, charter, international, and private schools, as well as Teach for America. To support its work as an MBE translational hub, the CTTL has existing research collaborations with individual faculty from Stanford University School of Education, the Science of Learning Institute at Johns Hopkins University, the Department of Psychology and Brain Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis, and Harvard’s Graduate School of Education.

“The CTTL is offering three online professional development micro-courses for cohorts of public school teachers free of charge. The goal is to help schools and districts accelerate learning recovery and address unfinished learning caused by the academic, social, and emotional impact of COVID-19. Elevating a teacher’s understanding of the Science of Learning enhances their ability to adapt, adjust, and accelerate learning for students as they work toward meeting defined outcomes.”
