The Charlotte Teachers Institute (CTI) is an initiative to strengthen teaching and learning in local public schools. Led by classroom teachers in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (Charlotte, N.C.) and professors at UNC Charlotte and Davidson College, CTI is founded on four pillars of strong professional development: content knowledge, creativity, leadership and collaboration.
Since 2009 . . .
- CTI has conducted 44 long-term Local Seminars led by 35 Davidson College and UNC Charlotte professors for more than 300 CMS teachers, totaling more than 12,000 hours of professional development.
- CTI Fellows have written more than 400 original Curriculum Units available to educators worldwide.
- Led by the Exploding Canons speakers series, CTI has offered 17 public community events for about 3,000 people, half of whom are CMS teachers.
