Teaching and Learning Design

In the Faculty Innovation Center, the Teaching and Learning Design (TLD) team provides support for faculty members and instructors who wish to discuss issues and ideas related to learning design, innovations in instruction, approaches to designing online or hybrid learning experiences, student engagement, and inclusive teaching.  

Members of the TLD team offer a range of services, from individual consultations with faculty members and instructors, to general and customized workshops for faculty, instructors and departments. They also develop, coordinate and sustain campus-wide programs tied to institutional priorities and initiatives.

October 2018

In September, TLD team lead Anne Braseby presented a Collaborative Learning Workshop (workshop participants pictured left). This was the first in a series of three that identifies three different “layers” of collaborative learning: Working in pairs, Working in groups, and Working in teams. Each layer has added complexity for the students and for the instructor. 
In September, TLD team member Adria Battaglia (left) partnered with the Graduate Student Development team in the FIC and offered two workshops serving over 80 graduate students on the topic of Universal Design for Learning
In September, TLD team member Matt Russell accompanied students in a Public Health course on a trip to Onion Creek to help discuss and study the Water Quality Protection Lands program with Kevin Theusen (left) of Austin Water. According to Dr. Theusen, exploring what’s at stake with water conservation issues in the places where they are actually impacted is all about helping students get a sense of “real science … up close and personal.”
