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) - So I Have Bias. Now What?

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

The research around unconscious bias is pretty clear: bias is the normal, natural result of the workings of the human mind. We all have it. There are even benefits. But it also leads to clear injustices and can hamper our ability to teach and support all of our students equally well. In this workshop, we'll explore different student-centered contexts and various interventions for mitigating the impacts of our bias as we seek to support our students in these contexts.
