Welcome to Georgetown University’s Teaching, Learning & Innovation Summer Institute, hosted by the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship.

TLISI offers Georgetown University faculty and staff from all campuses the opportunity to explore strategies for excellence in teaching and learning. This year’s Institute will focus on several topic areas, including effective teaching and learning practices, inclusive pedagogies, technology-enhanced learning, Ignatian pedagogy, cross-institutional and cross-departmental collaborations, and more.

We hope you’ll join us in our efforts to make TLISI "green"! We’re partnering with the Office of Sustainability to reduce the environmental impact from this year’s Institute by providing compostable materials and expanding our recycling presence.  Each registrant will also receive a free aluminum water bottle upon picking up your name badge at registration.  You can help us Go Green by bringing your reusable water bottle back with you each day, as we will be limiting our supply of single-use plastics throughout the week.  Stop by our information table anytime Monday-Thursday to learn about ways that you can help your office Go Green!

(In-Person Attendance) - Integrating Writing in the Major

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Georgetown’s Integrated Writing requirement was implemented as part of the Core Curriculum in 2014. The IW requirement invited faculty in every field to articulate what their students should learn about writing and to specify how their programs help students develop as writers. Programs responded in a variety of ways, from adding brief notes to their websites describing their existing ideas about and approaches to writing to developing whole new courses or resources. Five years in, now is a good time to review and reflect on how the requirement is working for both faculty and students.

In this session, faculty who have helped to implement IW in their programs will reflect on what the requirement has meant for their students and their programs, including opportunities, challenges, and obstacles. How has adding writing to the goals for the major affected faculty work and students’ experiences? What practices or conditions on campus or within their programs have helped? What difficulties have they encountered?
