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!

Making the Invisible Visible: Student Art Influencing Teaching & Learning

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

Which of our students are pushed to the margins on the Georgetown campus? What would happen if we centered those experiences? Could we shift future student experience at Georgetown?

Through the (In)Visibility at Georgetown: Past, Present, and Future campus-wide exhibit supported by the Office of the Provost and the Division of Student Affairs, student artists aimed to answer these questions by making the invisible visible. Drawing from the experiences of marginalized students on campus, this display of student artwork intended to center these realities for the broader campus community.

In this session for faculty and student-facing staff, we will examine works from (In)Visibility at Georgetown: Past, Present, and Future in order to inform our future work with students. In an exercise based in the emergent practices of object-based learning in higher education, participants will engage and interact with pieces from the exhibit. Through the object-based learning practices, session participants will experience how the act of close-looking can serve as a learning, teaching, and reflection tool while also discovering more about the student artwork. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn about the genesis of the exhibit as well as discuss the possibilities of student artwork to shape future student experiences.
