Workshop Information

The goal of this series is to allow participants to reflect upon their current approach to course design and to consider new and inventive practices that will enable them to achieve their desired goals. It is our hope that attendees come away from sessions with innovative ideas that they can be easily implemented in the classes they teach. Sessions will be facilitated by TLI staff and select faculty who can offer practical examples of the practices being discussed. Participants may choose to attend one, two, or all three sessions depending on their interests and availability. All instructional staff (including graduate students) are welcome to participate.

We will also be offering a new opportunity that we’re calling “TLI Coffee Break with the Colleges”. For this opportunity, members of TLI will be available in a selected college each month to work with individual faculty members, graduate student instructors, and others to answer their questions and have conversation about any of their teaching and learning needs. More information about where we will be each month is listed below. Each attendee will get a FREE “TLI Appreciates Faculty” travel mug.
