The Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL) at Emerson College will again offer the opportunity for faculty to participate in the Training TransformationalTeachers (TTT) Program this semester. TTT 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. This semester’s brochure is attached to this message.
The Spring 2020 program will begin on Tuesday, February 11. If you would like to participate, please submit the application form by Friday, January 31. We will notify you of your acceptance (or waiting-list status, if the program is oversubscribed) the following week. The application form is available online.
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 all have the information and tools they need to be more effective teachers.
Registration & Session Dates
The Office of Academic Affairs is sponsoring nine Emerson faculty members to participate in this unique faculty development program. The Spring 2020 sessions will occur on the following Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 pm: February 11, February 25, March 10, March 31, and April 21. Dinner will be provided. Emerson participants must commit to attending all five meetings, as each one builds on the previous meetings, but if there is a session that you cannot attend, it is possible to arrange to attend a Saturday session at Boston Architectural College (please see dates, below) to make up that session.
Note: This program also will be offered at Boston Architectural College, 320 Newbuty Street, on four Saturday mornings from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm: February 1, February 22, March 14, and April 4, with the fifth session on Tuesday, April 21, 6:30-8:30 pm, at Emerson College. Space in BAC’s program will be available for up to three Emerson faculty. If you are interested in participating in this program at BAC, you can so indicate on the registration application form, linked below.
