TLISI 2018

Event recap

In 2018, TLISI focused on several topic areas, including effective teaching and learning practices, inclusive pedagogies, technology-enhanced learning, Jesuit pedagogy, and cross-institutional and cross-departmental collaborations. In addition to the keynote speakers below, we welcomed Georgetown professor Yulia Chentsova-Dutton who presented data from a recent study on “Belonging on Campus.” TLISI also served as a convening for the Doyle Faculty Fellows, the Technology Enhanced Learning Colloquium, and ten interdisciplinary teams working on their own projects.

We’d like to again thank the entire Georgetown community for joining us at TLISI. We invite you to explore the recordings of keynotes and workshops/sessions from TLISI 2018 below.
