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!

Enhancing and Transforming the Core Experience - For Accepted "Transforming the Core" Participants Only

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

This session is only for those faculty and staff that submit letters of interest and were accepted into the
Transforming the Core Experience course development program.

More than just a set of required courses, the Georgetown Core provides a foundation that informs students’ experiences and learning across the undergraduate experience. The Core engages students with the world’s most insistent problems, current and perennial, humanistic and scientific, local and global -- problems that our students must be prepared to navigate and repair. To flourish, students need not only content knowledge from across the liberal arts but also the ability to engage fully with the complex problems and ideas that thread across the Core, through their majors, and beyond. We envision a Core experience that engages and challenges students through innovative course designs and significant projects that empower them to think creatively and strategically about the world and their roles in it.

Building on these goals, which dynamically involve multiple fields and do not address particular fields of knowledge but do emphasize engagement, application, and integration, we seek to expand on the creativity that faculty already bring to the Core by inviting new adaptations of existing courses, new configurations that might make connections across courses, and new courses, including those that integrate elements of the Core.
