About the Collegium

Established in 2000, the Collegium offers faculty, particularly those who teach large classes, an opportunity to come together and discuss challenges they face and changes they would like to implement in their teaching.

The Collegium offers workshops and learning sessions designed to actively engage participants in open conversations about teaching and learning. In addition to practical issues of classroom management and facilitation of teaching assistants, the group explores active learning strategies, teaching with technology, assessment, and diversity as they relate to large class instruction. Each faculty participant is invited to bring a teaching issue or challenge that he or she would like to address. Throughout the Collegium, faculty are encouraged to think about and articulate how the various sessions come to bear on their own teaching concerns.


Current University of Washington faculty and lecturers who will be teaching at least one course during the 2014-15 academic year are encouraged to apply. Interested individuals are required to complete the online registration form, accessible via your UW NetID. Confirmation of your registration will be sent through email.


We encourage faculty to register early as seats are limited. Registration will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. Your name will be automatically added to a waiting list should your confirmation indicate that the Collegium has reached capacity. A UW NetID is needed to access and complete the online form. Hard copy registrations will not be accepted.
