A Community of Peers

The Collaborative for Learning and Teaching is a support center on campus for Trinity faculty and teaching staff to find resources and learn more about teaching in higher education. 

We offer talks, workshops, and consultations on a wide range of topics in teaching and learning. We bring in outside speakers and pedagogy experts to support the work of our faculty. We also host events to highlight the amazing and innovative teaching happening across campus.

So what do we do?

  • Support the development and exchange of ideas and practices for effective teaching 
  • Engage students to share their perspectives on learning
  • Host presentations, discussions, workshops, and scholarly communication activities
  • Provide instructional and curricular support
  • Offer incentives for pedagogical experimentation and scholarship through grants
  • Work with other Trinity offices and programs to support faculty

Our Events

The Collaborative produces a diverse, regularly evolving calendar of events for faculty and staff to acquire and share information, resources, and ideas for creative and effective teaching.

  • Book Clubs

    Book clubs provide an opportunity each semester for both faculty and staff to come together and discuss a common reading.

  • Early Career Faculty Events

    The Collaborative supports early career faculty through events tailored specifically to their unique needs.

  • Pedagogy Workshop Series

    Instructional workshops hosted by Collaborative staff focused on teaching, student engagement, and academic technology.

And so many more

Our Programs

Collaborative programs are intended to provide more extensive, in-depth, and personalized support than our regular events. Many of these programs encourage a deeper level of transdisciplinary collaboration and conversation amongst faculty of differing ranks and actively solicit student perspectives as a tool for faculty development and appreciation.
