Technology-enhanced learning

CNDLS TEL Colloquium

The CNDLS TEL Colloquium application process is no longer open. Below is the call for the Spring 2019 Colloquium which is in progress. Please check back in the future for updates, or contact us at with questions or to schedule a one-on-one consultation.

The CNDLS Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) Colloquium provides an opportunity for faculty to join a small group of colleagues in face-to-face monthly meetings and explore topics in technology-enhanced learning while designing and implementing individual projects.

Faculty will explore a range of learning models as well as discuss issues of design and implementation, including selecting appropriate tools, addressing challenges, and assessing impact on the student experience.

Meetings will be facilitated by CNDLS faculty and staff. In addition to attending monthly meetings, participants will be asked to design, implement, and assess a TEL project by the end of their year-long participation. You can find a list of current and past participants here.

Spring 2019 Theme: Approaches to Blended Learning

The Spring 2019 TEL Colloquium—a six-month, hands-on experience—will explore a range of pedagogical approaches to blended learning (sometimes referred to as flipped, hybrid, or mixed-mode learning). As part of this six-month exploration, faculty in the TEL colloquium will engage with various strategies and tools to integrate traditional in-class learning with learning beyond the classroom. Faculty will participate in both face-to-face monthly meetings and in an online environment as they design individual projects.

For examples of blended learning projects that Georgetown faculty have undertaken in the past few years, see the following:

Funding: Participants will receive a $1,500 stipend for full participation in the Colloquium, including attending monthly meetings, engaging with colleagues in an online environment, designing a TEL project, participating in a daylong workshop during the Teaching, Learning and Innovation Summer Institute (TLISI), and a brief final report to CNDLS.

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

Colloquium Timeline: The Colloquium will run for six months from January 2019 to June 2019. Faculty will participate in face-to-face monthly meetings, an online learning environment, and a daylong workshop at Georgetown’s annual Teaching, Learning, and Innovation Summer Institute (TLISI) in May 2019.

To Participate: The Spring 2019 TEL Colloquium is currently in progress, and no longer accepting statements of interest.
