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) - Reflection: You and Your Educational Space

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

This workshop offers a practical space for exploring the third dynamic of the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm (IPP): Reflection. While not unique to Ignatian-inspired teaching, Reflection is intimately tied to the visionary characteristics of Jesuit Education - comprehensive, world-affirming, with an emphasis on freedom. Reflection is not a goal in and of itself; as a practice, it allows learners (including educators) to add meaning and understanding to who they are becoming. How does content or experience change a learner's view of the world, of themselves? It is through Reflection that learners can hear the call for resultant actions and build the physical, mental, spiritual, and moral resources to pursue them. In this workshop, we explore Reflection - and discernment - as understood through Ignatian Pedagogy. We will workshop ways as educators that we can create a habit for the self-work of Reflection as part of the process towards introducing Reflection as a pedagogical tool in our educational spaces. All types of educational spaces will be considered in this workshop - online, in classrooms, credit-bearing, co-curricular, immersive, experiential, etc. All educators are welcome to this workshop - staff, faculty, NTL, tenured, administrators, adjunct, graduate students, and any not listed list here.
