TILE Essentials: Summer 2017 Registration is Now Open

TILE Essentials: Summer 2017 Registration is Now Open

TILE Essentials is the Center for Teaching’s two-day intensive workshop that focuses on the active-learning pedagogies implemented by instructors who teach in TILE (as well as other) classrooms. Upon completion of both days of TILE Essentials, instructors will be enabled to request a TILE room from the Registrar’s Office. 


  • Day 1: Thursday, June 15, 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm, in LIB 1022 (TILE Classroom)
  • Day 2: Thursday, June 22, 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm, in LIB 1022 (TILE Classroom)

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.  Thus we suggest registering by June 8 if possible.  

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.
