Faculty/Staff Consultations

The Collaborative serves as a faculty resource for feedback on instructional decisions and design, student perspectives on learning, and pedagogical applications of technology; to this end, we offer one-on-one teaching consultations for all faculty and teaching staff at Trinity.

Consultation Topics May Include:

  • reviews of course materials (such as syllabi and assignments)
  • best practices for facilitating classroom pedagogical practices, including both dynamic discussions and interactive lecturing
  • guidance on applying the principles of Understanding by Design to create stronger relationships between Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) and assessments
  • methods for team-based learning and student peer review work
  • implementation of multimodal or other "non-traditional" assignments
  • building in scaffolding of assignments and formative evaluation of student learning
  • incorporating Pathways elements into a course

To schedule a consultation with the Collaborative, contact either Katherine Troyer (ktroyer [at] or Tom Jenkins (tjenkins [at]


Please note: The Collaborative does not participate in faculty promotion-and-tenure evaluations. These consultations are both confidential and formative in nature.
