Transforming Teachers, Departments and Schools: Brain-Based Program Breaks Boundaries and Overcomes Limitations
Robinson, Matt
New England Journal of Higher Education, Jan 2018
As English Language Arts and Math continue to be touted as top priorities, and as the assessment of related skills takes up more and more time in many schools, teachers are left with less time to share ideas with each other or with their students. In the realm of higher education, where more is being left to adjuncts and part-time staff, communication is limited within departments, let alone across them. That is what makes Berklee College of Music professor Pratt Bennet's Training Transformational Teachers program so remarkable. The program uses research from a number of fields to help educators better understand how the brain learns best, then shows them classroom-tested strategies to boost student interest, retention and creative applications of what they're learning.
