Together we create extraordinary student learning experiences.
Our theory of change
At the Taylor Institute we understand that most learning about teaching — what it means and how to do it — happens during significant conversations among small networks of trusted colleagues (Roxå & Martensson, 2009). How do we encourage the formation and growth of these small networks? And how can we nurture the integration of small groups to form larger networks?
We aim to create opportunities to link networks of educational leaders, faculty, staff and students, and to encourage the flow of knowledge between these groups. To ensure accessibility and inclusivity, we offer varied programs, workshops and events on diverse topics for a range of experience levels. We create multiple points of entry for beginners and then provide ongoing activities to develop expertise, community and leadership.
