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!

(Livestream Attendance) - Topics in Inclusive Pedagogy: Climate and Power in the Classroom

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

How does power shape classroom climate, student engagement, and learning outcomes? This session takes a close look at the various types of power faculty and students might have, and considers strategies for mitigating the effects of power imbalances. Through a discussion of the pitfalls of unexamined power, we’ll work to identify tools that foster a sense of empowerment for students and faculty in the learning environment. Areas of focus will include assessment, classroom participation, and mentorship. This session will be most relevant to faculty, but will also have relevance for staff whose work puts them in regular contact with students.
