Transforming Learning through Student-Centered Environments

TILE Essentials is the Center for Teaching’s two-part workshop that focuses on the active-learning pedagogies implemented by instructors who teach in TILE (as well as other) classrooms.  Completion of both Parts I and II of the Essentials workshop enables instructors to request a TILE room from the Registrar’s Office.

               Friday, March 25 (Part I)    2:00-4:30


               Friday, April 1 (Part II)    2:00-4:30

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 (March, July, October).  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.  


**TILE Essentials is two parts on March 25 & April 1,  2:00 pm - 4:30 pm in 134 Trowbridge Hall (TILE classroom). Attendance at both parts is required.**
