Teaching Resource and Research Center

Our Mission​​

To support a campus community that promotes and disseminates innovative and effective teaching practices.

The Center

Giles Hall Room G16, Spelman College, 350 Spelman Ln SW, Atlanta, GA. 30314

With resources from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the U.S. Department of Education (Title III), the Spelman College Teaching Resource and Research Center was established in the fall of 2007 to support the continued, long-term development of the faculty to meet the demands of 21st century teaching and learning.

TRRC has its roots in the rich tradition of Black women's commitment to the joyfulness of ideas, or what Anna Julia Cooper called, "the thumping from within unanswered by any beckoning from without." (1892)

Drawing on the interconnecting threads of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) and feminist scholarship on engaged pedagogy and social transformation, TRRC is also committed to the commons, a space filled with the spirit of systematic inquiry and hope, and where private delights and dilemmas escape the classroom and are publicly shared (bell hooks, 2003; Hutchings, 2005).
