TILE Essentials: Spring Registration Now Open

Transforming Learning through Student-Centered Environments

TILE Essentials is the Center for Teaching’s two-day intensive workshop that focuses on the active-learning pedagogies implemented by instructors who teach in TILE (as well as other) classrooms. Upon completion of both days of TILE Essentials, instructors will be enabled to request a TILE room from the Registrar’s Office. 


  • Day 1: Friday, March 3, 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm, in LIB 1140 (TILE)
  • Day 2: Friday, March 10, 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm, in LIB 1140 (TILE)

The two-part training will focus on team-based, inquiry-guided teaching and learning, and also will provide additional technology instruction for those who would like it. 

Instructors will also complete preparation assignments before both Parts I and II that will involve designing an active-learning module for use in a future syllabus.  Thus we suggest registering by February 24 if possible.  

TILE Essentials are offered three times a year (Spring, Summer, Fall).  Participating in the TILE Essentials is necessary prior to teaching in a TILE classroom.  By completing the registration form you indicate that you will commit to participate in the intensive 2-day TILE Essentials, to respond to assessment inquiries, and to maintain involvement in the TILE Program through emails, inquiries, and optional retreats and discussions. 

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact the Center for Teaching in advance at 319-335-6048.
