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) - Putting the Personal into the Pedagogical: Sharing Ignatian Pedagogy with Faculty, Staff, and Students through Personal Narrative

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

In its Mission Examen self-study report, Georgetown committed to “implement the principles of Ignatian pedagogy across our curriculum and co-curriculum” while attending to “diverse contexts and the specific needs of students in the spirit of Cura personalis.” How to accomplish this goal? What is the best starting point for a conversation about Ignatian pedagogy?

The purpose of this workshop is to demonstrate how personal narratives of Ignatian education and formation effectively promote Ignatian pedagogy in the development of faculty, staff, and students. More than concepts to be memorized, Ignatian pedagogy comes alive when teachers model their own personal transformation in the transmission of Ignatian teaching principles. In this 60-minute workshop, academic and administrative leaders responsible for Ignatian pedagogy at the School of Continuing Studies present personal perspectives on teaching and leading the organization from their own deep personal engagement with Ignatian themes. Ideal audience for this session are faculty and administrators from across Georgetown who will take away:

• Appreciation of Ignatian pedagogy’s humanistic emphasis

• Understanding of practical starting points for initiating conversations about Ignatian pedagogy

• Insight into the various ways that members of the Georgetown faculty and staff can deepen in their personal formation in Ignatian principles
