Transforming Learning through Student-Centered Environments
TILE Essentials is the Center for Teaching’s two-day intensive workshop that focuses on the active-learning pedagogies implemented by instructors who teach in TILE (as well as other) classrooms. Upon completion of both days of TILE Essentials, instructors will be enabled to request a TILE room from the Registrar’s Office.
Day 1: Friday, October 21, 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm, in 1022 LIB (TILE)
Day 2: Friday, October 28, 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm, in 1022 LIB (TILE)
The two-part training will focus on team-based, inquiry-guided teaching and learning, and also will provide additional technology instruction for those who would like it.
Instructors will also complete preparation assignments before both Parts I and II that will involve designing an active-learning module for use in a future syllabus.
TILE Essentials are offered three times a year (Spring, Summer, Fall). Participating in the TILE Essentials is necessary prior to teaching in a TILE classroom. By completing the registration form you indicate that you will commit to participate in the intensive 2-day TILE Essentials, to respond to assessment inquiries, and to maintain involvement in the TILE Program through emails, inquiries, and optional retreats and discussions.
