For pedagogical reformers, the most interesting questions concern how people in a department are participating in new flows of ideas about teaching and learning–where they are engaging with these ideas, whether the department itself supports improvement and innovation, and whether it provides structures or forums in which new ideas about teaching and learning can be developed, debated, and discussed.

Please read more about how the Physics Department at Queen's University, as one of the case studies of departments that participated in TRESTLE, a Bay View Alliance initiative, worked with a post doc educational expert  on course transformations for a period of three years.
