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.

Part I: Friday, Oct. 25, 2019, 2 to 4:30 p.m., LIB 1022 (TILE classroom)


Part II: Friday, Nov. 1, 2019, 2 to 4:30 p.m., LIB 1022 (TILE classroom)

The two-part workshop will focus on team-based, inquiry-guided teaching and learning and will also provide additional technology instruction for those who would like it.

Instructors will also complete preparation assignments before both Parts I and II. We suggest registering by Friday, Oct. 11, if possible.

TILE Essentials is offered at select times throughout the year. Participating in 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 two-day TILE Essentials, to respond to assessment inquiries, and to maintain involvement in the TILE Program through emails, inquiries, and optional retreats and discussions.
