CNDLS TEL Colloquium
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 participation in the cohort. You can find a list of current and past participants here.
2019 - 2020 Colloquium Theme: Approaches to Blended Learning
The 2019 - 2020 TEL Colloquium—a eight-month, hands-on experience—will explore a range of pedagogical approaches to blended learning (sometimes referred to as flipped, hybrid, or mixed-mode learning). TEL colloquium participants 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 and implement individual projects.
For examples of blended learning projects that Georgetown faculty have undertaken in the past few years, see the following:
- Flipping (Parts of) the Public Finance Classroom, Nora Gordon (Public Policy)
- Intersections of Social Justice Experiences and Learning: Andria Wisler (Justice and Peace)
- Hybrid Format for Intensive Advanced Italian, Donatella Melucci (Italian), Louise Hipwell (Italian)
- Georgetown Faculty in the TEL Colloquium Develop Blended Learning Projects For Their Classes, Becca Tarsa (English), Yumi Jarris (Family Medicine), Greg Afinogenov (History)
Colloquium Timeline: The Colloquium will run for eight months from September 2019 to May 2020. 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 2020. A final report will be due in January 2021, following implementation of the projects designed during the Colloquium.
Funding: 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 the Teaching, Learning and Innovation Summer Institute (TLISI).
Eligibility: Full-time Georgetown faculty (tenure- and non-tenure line) are invited to apply.
