Review for Collaborative For Teaching And Learning Inc, Louisville, KY, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

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.
