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) - Apply Universal Design for Learning (UDL)–an Accessible, Usable and Inclusive Class

Faculty members teach students with diverse backgrounds, learning needs and preferences. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) works to create a flexible and customizable learning experience for all through designs that from the beginning consider diverse needs and strengths of learners. To optimize the learning experience, faculty may apply the three key UDL principles known as multiple means of representation, expression and engagement. These principles provide faculty course design guidelines and incorporate teaching that enhances accessibility, usability and inclusivity.

This workshop is for participants to learn about the value of UDL, in order to review and apply the principles to their own courses. We will discuss application of UDL through scenarios that demonstrate the use of the three principles. The conversation will include review of course content samples such as a course syllabus, activities, assessments, and materials. Participants will walk out of the workshop with knowledge about UDL and practical suggestions for implementing the principles to their current course.
