TLISI Preview: Beyond the Classroom

Several sessions at this year's Teaching, Learning, and Innovation Summer Institute (TLISI), which will take place May 24-26, will focus on ways that faculty can bring their students outside of the traditional classroom setting. For example, one workshop will highlight the Georgetown Learning Initiatives Curriculum Enrichment Grants, which fund class activities such as excursions to theatrical performances or visits by guest speakers. Another session will bring together faculty from various disciplines to share stories about how they incorporate D.C.'s cultural assets, including museums and monuments, into their courses. Georgetown's innovative telepresence classroom, which allows classes to be held jointly in D.C. and in Doha, will be the focus of another faculty panel.  Finally, staff members from the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching, and Service are leading a two-day workshop on how to embed community-based learning and research into Georgetown courses. (The CSJ workshop requires advance registration; please contact Deanna Cooke (dyc4@georgetown.edu) or Jane Kirchner (jck47@georgetown.edu) for more information.) For more detailed descriptions of these workshops, as well as information on the many other workshops offered this year, please visit the TLISI website.
