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!

Georgetown University’s Veterans Office held its first Veteran Education Training (VET) Ally Program in 2013 to start a dialogue among the campus community to identify the strengths and challenges service members, veterans, and military family members face while pursuing their academic and career goals in a civilian environment. The Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits, was founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola after recovering from a battle wound and overcoming the challenges he faced while transitioning from being a warrior to a civilian. The VET Ally Program provides our campus with a visible network of knowledgeable supporters of service members, veterans, and military families as the pursue personal, academic, and professional goals. The seminar covers many topics of great importance to military students studying at Georgetown. Participants are offered a handbook that serves as a resource to help VET Allies support the military community. VET Allies are also issued a decal to display in their office or space to highlight that the space is military-friendly.
