The science of learning is the most promising research being applied to close the teacher quality and student achievement gap, and puts teachers and school leaders at the forefront of research-informed professional development and classroom strategies. In this session, teachers and school leaders will have the opportunity to work with the internationally recognized Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School to bridge the gap between science of learning research and their daily practice.
