homepage of tile website

We are excited to share the new TILE web presence, a source of news and information regarding the program, now in its ninth year. In developing this page, our primary goals were to share the pedagogical approach, invite instructors to participate in TILE Essentials workshops, and provide pedagogical and instructional software support.

Since 2010, more than 500 UI instructors have participated in TILE professional development and incorporated TILE modes of teaching and learning into their courses. TILE (Transform, Interact, Learn, Engage) is an approach to teaching that incorporates inquiry-guided, team-based learning to increase faculty and student engagement. TILE instructors gain an understanding of these pedagogies through well-designed workshops, one-on-one consultations, and focused technology training.

To view the new pages, visit teach.uiowa.edu/tile. Please let us know what you think; your feedback can help us improve the content and structure of the site. Contact the TILE program at tile@uiowa.edu or 319-335-6048.

The Office of the Registrar also recently designed a TILE page that provides detailed information and images of TILE classrooms.

Register for the next TILE Essentials workshop to be held from 2 to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 11, and Thursday, July 25. Instructors who wish to teach in a TILE room must participate in the two-part TILE Essentials before requesting a room.
