The TRIAD Coalition is a research community that brings together experts in education research across STEM disciplines. It supports a community of well-meaning faculty by liaising with existing support structures and resources across the university to facilitate course transformations and the related measurement of change.
The TRIAD Coalition was established to create a community of practice characterized by communication and interaction among STEM faculty across disciplinary boundaries. TRIAD's threefold mission is:
- to broaden and strengthen capacity to improve the quality of undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education,
- to develop a community of post-secondary teaching professionals implementing the products of discipline-based education research,
- to create a rich, multi-disciplinary collaborative community of STEM education researchers.
