Welcome back! The Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL) at Emerson will again offer the opportunity for faculty to participate in the Training Transformational Teachers (TTT) Program this semester. The program is an intensive, semester-long training in understanding, experimenting with, and refining research-based teaching techniques shown to boost student learning and engagement. The TTT program provides tools, techniques, and insights to help teachers reach and engage all of their students. For a more extensive description of this semester’s program, please see the brochure.
The Spring 2019 program will begin on Tuesday, February 5. If you would like to participate, please submit the application form by Monday, January 28. We will notify you of your acceptance (or waiting list status, if the program is oversubscribed) the following week. The application form is here.
Created by two Berklee College of Music faculty members, Kevin Johnson and Pratt Bennet, the program blends the latest research on teaching and learning. Pratt will share effective techniques for helping all students to understand more content and concepts deeply enough to apply them on their own. Participants will have an opportunity to get both group and individual coaching to make sure they have all the information and tools they need to be more effective teachers.
Registration and Session Dates
The Office of Academic Affairs is sponsoring nine Emerson faculty members to participate in this unique faculty development program. The Spring 2019 sessions will occur on the following Tuesdays, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm: February 5 and 26, March 26, April 16, and May 7. Dinner will be provided. Emerson participants must commit to attending all five meetings, as each one builds on the previous meetings.
