Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT) is an international multi-institutional research study that examines how making course assignments more transparent enhances equitable teaching practice and fosters students’ sense of belonging. This event is co-sponsored by the University of Iowa Office of the Provost. 

Participants may register for all or some of the sessions.
