Through professional development, classroom design, and assessment, the University of Iowa has encouraged and supported instructors to implement TILE (Transform, Interact, Learning, Engage) pedagogies. The TILE program provides workshops and “refreshers” that present evidence-based teaching strategies for creating inquiry-based, team-based courses. Participation in the two-part TILE Essentials is required for instructors to request access to the technology-enhanced TILE and TILE-Flex classrooms.
