Discovery Place and Gantt Center to Host 2014 CTI Seminars

The Charlotte Teachers Institute (CTI) is proud to announce two new cultural partnerships aimed at enhancing teachers’ experiences in the 7-monthlong seminars.  Discovery Place and the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture will host five CTI seminars in 2014.  “We are beyond excited to have the opportunity to work with icons of the scientific and cultural scene in the greater Charlotte community,” said Scott Gartlan, CTI Executive Director.  “These partnerships will provide full access for our teachers to explore artifacts in innovative ways to improve their curriculum.”  Teachers, known as “Fellows,” participating in 5 seminars (listed below) will meet together for each of the 12 seminar meetings at either Discovery Place or the Gantt Center from April through November 2014.  Additionally, all 104 Fellows (13 teachers in each of the eight seminars) will receive a free yearly membership to Discovery Place, Discovery Place Kids, Charlotte Nature Museum and the new Education Studio in the STEM Center for Professional Development.  Click here to learn more about all eight 2014 CTI Seminars.
