The Center for Research in Educational Policy (CREP) has conducted educational evaluations and research throughout the country. In that capacity we have had the opportunity to work many times with the Collaborative for Teaching and Learning (CTL) from Louisville, Kentucky. They are consummate professionals and bring a great deal of knowledge and experience to their work. Additionally they are excellent collaborators. CREP’s experience with CTL has been rewarding and gratifying. We applaud their commitment to quality educational opportunities for students and teachers.

The Collaborative for Teaching and Learning does top-notch work. In collaborating with staff of both CTL and partnering organizations on an expansive education project, I found myself in a room with people who are highly thoughtful, prepared, thorough and progressive in their idea-making. It has been stimulating and rewarding to work with an organization which deeply values arts in education, and seeks to nurture genuine growth for teachers and learners.

CTL is a non profit that understands the links between the needs of children for experience in the arts and the needs of teachers to have children in their classrooms learn the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic. Their professional development programs that mix the arts with the basics are increasingly being modified for delivery through today's videoconferencing technologies. They are tops in all aspects.

CTL offers professional development that recognizes the growth and development of the whole child. CTL trainers understand that children live in an ever-changing and emerging world, and CTL instructors and trainers make connections to content that integrate multi-sensory learning and multi-faceted content that is challenging yet respectful of today's students.

CTL offered a program at the college where I teach c alled content literacy. The purpose of the program was to improve the teaching skills of the faculty that participated. The focus of the program was to teach students how to read to learn and write to learn so they could better teach themselves. The program focused on student centered learning. CTL practiced what they preached. Several techniques were explained and then we participated in the techniques. We used the techniques to learn the techniques. The experience overall was a good one. Although CTL states that the techniques are pertinent to all fields I did not find this to be the case in several instances. I think the experience would have been more effective if the participants were from similar diciplines so the techniques could be adjusted better to fit that dicipline. The faculty at the CTL were very helpful. Someone even came to your classroom to observe you implementing their techniques and give you feedback on what they saw.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have implemented some of the teaching techniques I learned in my class and have had success with these.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Exposure to new teaching tecdhniques

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very helpful and friendly.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Bring their program to many more institutions.

CTL is one of the premier consulting organizations in the country. I was extremely impressed with the expertise of their consultants and coaches. They motivate teachers to look at teaching in new ways.

As a Superintendent, I was always looking for better ways to provide the training needed for teachers. CTL opened the door to the kinds of new thinking I wanted teachers to experience.
