B4: Encourage pedagogical innovation

In its first year of operation, the recently launched Collaborative for Learning and Teaching has already provided physical space and a context to promote pedagogical innovation among the Trinity faculty. The Collaborative is the primary site for faculty members to talk about their teaching and to engage in peer-to-peer professional development to support student learning. By hosting workshops, awarding course design grants, and promoting the cross-fertilization of ideas across the disciplines, the Collaborative is poised to significantly contribute to the quality of teaching and learning on campus in the years to come.

Academic Technology (AT) will support and integrate multimedia resources for the Trinity community. AT staff members will engage with faculty in various academic programs to understand pedagogical goals and the role that technology should play as campus facilities are continually upgraded and new spaces are designed. In collaboration with faculty librarians, AT staff will provide training and support to faculty who use smart classrooms and other forms of technology in their teaching.
