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!

Bryan Alexander is an internationally known futurist, researcher, writer, speaker, consultant, and teacher, working in the field of how technology transforms education.  
Bryan taught literature, writing, multimedia, and information technology studies at Centenary College of Louisiana, where he pioneered multi-campus interdisciplinary classes, while organizing an information literacy initiative.

From 2002 to 2014, Bryan worked with the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE), a non-profit working to help small colleges and universities best integrate digital technologies. With NITLE, he held several roles, including co-director of a regional education and technology center, director of emerging technologies, and senior fellow. Over those years Bryan helped develop and support the nonprofit, grew peer networks, consulted, and conducted a sustained research agenda.

In 2013 Bryan launched a business, Bryan Alexander Consulting, LLC.  Through BAC he consults throughout higher education in the United States and abroad.

This session will begin by developing present-day trends likely to shape higher education's futures. They include trends from outside the academy that nonetheless impact universities, including forces from demographics, macroeconomics, culture, policy, and geopolitics. Technological change drivers receive particular attention, from 3d printing to digital video, artificial intelligence, and the rapidly changing device ecosystem.

We then shift to explore trends within higher education. These include changes in enrollment, finance, and equity. They also include the intersection of education with technology.
The session concludes by presenting several scenarios for future universities.
