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.
