The University of Iowa is committed to transforming education and increasing opportunities for student success.
The TILE project supports these goals through transformed teaching practices, lively interaction, enhanced learning and increased faculty/student engagement. As a hallmark of this support, new TILE learning spaces are being developed on campus.
The event will be conducted by Dr. Jon Gaffney, post-doctoral fellow in physics, University of Kentucky. Dr. Gaffney conducted the fall 2010 TILE Institute and has worked closely with Dr. Bob Beichner, who directs the SCALE-UP program at North Carolina State University and conducted the summer 2010 TILE Faculty Institute. The nationally recognized SCALE-UP program is a resource for institutions that want to create and assess classroom environments that support interactive, collaborative learning.
We welcome applications from University of Iowa tenured, tenure-track and clinical faculty members.
