Commenced in January 2014, the eLearning Incubator works across the College, in all areas of teaching and learning.
The eLearning Incubator has a pedagogical and educational focus, and is consultative and collaborative.
Its key aims are to deliver quality academic development to:
- help staff create transformative educational experiences for students
- develop teaching solutions and strategies for innovative projects
- research and measure the effectiveness of eLearning delivery
The group also writes and publishes academic articles based on primary research in national and international peer-reviewed journals, and present at national and international conferences. Three articles, and one international academic conference are planned for 2014.
About Trinity's eLearning initiatives
In 2014 TCFS is evolving from an established base of mobile learning principles, to expand its eLearning potential.
Staffed by teachers and technology specialists, the eLearning Incubator is researching and piloting developing technologies, learning and teaching environments, project-based and student-centred learning.
The anticipated outcomes are designed to equip students with the critical thinking and learning skills demanded by universities and employers in the twenty-first century.
A new initiative of Trinity's eLearning is the Teaching and Learning website, where students and teachers work creatively.
