Announcing the 2019-2020 CNDLS TEL Colloquium – Statements of Interest Due July 31!

2019-2020 TEL Colloquium Announcement

CNDLS is pleased to announce the next iteration of our Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) Colloquium, focusing on Approaches to Blended Learning.

What is the TEL Colloquium?

The 2019-2020 TEL Colloquium — an eight-month, hands-on experience — provides an opportunity for faculty to join a small group of colleagues in face-to-face monthly meetings to explore topics in technology-enhanced learning, while designing and implementing their own individual projects. Participants will explore a range of pedagogical approaches to blended learning (sometimes referred to as flipped, hybrid, or mixed-mode learning), and will engage with various strategies and tools to integrate traditional in-class learning with learning beyond the classroom. This theme–approaches to blended learning–allows for diverse project proposals in terms of discipline, process, and scope, while remaining under the broad umbrella of TEL. Participants will be asked to design, implement, and assess their TEL project by the end of their participation in the cohort. You can learn more about past TEL Colloquium participants and their projects on our website.

Format & Timeline

The colloquium is designed as a primarily face-to-face program, with faculty attending monthly studio design sessions to discuss and learn ways to implement blended learning techniques into your course design. Faculty, facilitators, graduate assistants, designers, and learning technologists will guide participants through the design process, and offer opportunities for feedback from fellow colloquium members. An online Canvas course is used to host resources and interactive activities to model good practices in the field of blended learning.

The TEL Colloquium will kickoff in September 2019 and culminate with faculty presentations and a daylong workshop at CNDLS’ annual Teaching, Learning, & Innovation Summer Institute (TLISI) in May 2020. A final report will be due in January 2021, following implementation of the projects designed during the Colloquium.


Participants will receive a $2,000 stipend for full participation in the Colloquium, including attending monthly meetings, engaging with colleagues in an online environment, designing and implementing a TEL project, and participating in a daylong workshop during TLISI.


Full-time Georgetown faculty (tenure- and non-tenure line) are invited to apply.
