TILE (Transform, Interact, Learn, Engage) is a nationally-recognized University of Iowa initiative that encourages team-based, inquiry-guided pedagogies. 

The UI is committed to transforming education and increasing opportunities for student success. The TILE program supports these goals by transforming teaching practices, promoting lively interaction, facilitating enhanced learning, and increasing faculty/student engagement. TILE instructors use a foundation of a student-centered, active learning for a classroom built around the issues of pedagogy, practice, and technology.

TILE spaces are equipped with circular tables, laptops, flat screen monitors, multiple projectors, and whiteboards to encourage and support collaborative and engaged active learning. The faculty workstation is not at the front of the room, as with a traditional lecture-based classroom, but instead in the middle, creating a free-flowing learning environment where the lines between instructor and student are shared and blurred.
