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!
