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: Opportunities for Inclusive Content and Pedagogical Practice

At its core, inclusive pedagogy is aimed at creating a space for learning that works for all students, and to allow every student to have equal access to learning in the class. In order to do so, deliberate actions must be taken to foster such access to learning and build a sense of belonging for each student, especially students with historically excluded identities. Building an environment of inclusivity into a course can take on a number of strategies; in this workshop, we will focus interrogating and varying the content and pedagogy of a course toward greater inclusion and engagement of diverse students. We will hear from individual professors who have incorporated inclusive pedagogy and content into their courses. Then, through facilitated reflection and discussion, participants will have the opportunity to explore the pedagogy and content within their own course(s), and work alongside others to begin to identity and activate ways in which they can redesign their course(s) toward fostering more equitable and inclusive learning environments for their students. We ask that all workshop attendees have a course in mind that they would be interested in evaluating and possibly redesigning. Having a copy of the current syllabus would also be useful.
