PUBLIC SCHOOL DISCOUNTED RATE through matching grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative: see below!

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. Now in its fourth year, the Academy seeks to continue its success as an innovative professional development opportunity for educators from public, public-charter and independent schools around the world.
We welcome you to join us for the Academy in the Washington, DC region for a four-day intensive and fun immersion into Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) Science research-informed teaching and learning. Academy participants will also receive year-round mentoring after the workshop. The work of the CTTL, and specifically the Academy, seeks to help teachers and school leaders to bring the growing body of Mind, Brain, and Education Science research into the design of their schools, districts, 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 their brain works, learns, and changes. 
Your registration includes: 

Brain food, including daily, hot, buffet-style breakfast and lunch, and a variety of healthy snacks throughout the day
Networking moments, including a catered barbecue dinner, with peers and Academy faculty
Three online sessions throughout the school year to connect with your translation group
