CTI Featured on WFAE 90.7 ‘Charlotte Talks’

WFAE 90.7 Radio’s “Charlotte Talks” June 24 show featured Charlotte Teachers Institute in a lively, hour-long interview with four CTI leaders: CTI Fellow/Steering Committee Member Beth Lasure, visual arts teacher at Mallard Creek High School; CTI Seminar Leader Ann Fox, professor of English at Davidson College; CTI Seminar Leader Susan Trammell, associate professor of physics at UNC Charlotte; and CTI Executive Director Scott Gartlan.

Topics included CTI’s innovative model of long-term, content-rich professional development; its growth in popularity (55% increase in applicants over the last two years); how teachers and faculty collaborate to produce new curriculum for CMS students; the program’s benefits for CMS teachers, their students, and the Davidson College and UNC Charlotte faculty involved in CTI; teacher eligibility and the application process; how seminar topics are selected and developed; and CTI’s relationships among its educational partners (CMS, Davidson College, UNC Charlotte and Yale University).
