McGill and Trafalgar School launch the CoLab

Teacher Insights

McGill University’s Faculty of Education and Trafalgar School for Girls are partnering to establish a transformative partnership - the CoLab. A first of its kind in Canada, the CoLab will integrate teacher training, classroom practice and cutting-edge pedagogical research under one roof. Inspired by laboratory school models at Oxford, Columbia, University of Chicago, and UCLA, the CoLab aims to deliver a dynamic and collaborative learning environment where secondary school and university educators will work together to transform the classroom and the future of teaching and learning.

The CoLab will create an environment where research hubs are integrated into every teaching area; teachers-in-training learn in a space where research and practice are seamlessly combined; secondary students benefit from experiential, interdisciplinary learning; and practicing teachers can share expertise and engage in lifelong learning.
