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!

Building Writing into Your Course: Why and How

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

Writing is one of the best ways to help students understand the key ideas of your course, no matter what you teach. It’s also the best evidence of how well students can use those ideas. But to make it work well – for students and for faculty – we need to make strategic choices about how to use writing to foster engagement and how to design assignments that generate meaningful learning and papers we want to read. This hands-on workshop will help you design courses and assignments that cultivate better learning and better writing.
