TILE Celebrates 500 Instructors


In only eight years, the TILE program has managed to leave a lasting impact on over 500 faculty members and thousands of students across the UI campus. TILE, which encourages inquiry-guided, team-based teaching and learning, kicked off in 2010. Supported by the latest technology, TILE classrooms have transformed the ways instructors teach and students learn at Iowa.

TILE Feedback Shaping New TILE Program Initiatives


As the TILE (Transform, Interact, Learn, Engage) Program nears its seventh anniversary, faculty feedback remains crucial to the program’s success. In December of 2016, the Office of Teaching, Learning & Technology invited 386 instructors to partake in a survey that will guide how we move forward to improve and enhance the teaching and learning experience in the TILE Program.
