Experience. Service. Online Learning. Engagement.
In 2015, the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, formed Teaching and Learning Innovation, or TLI. Bringing together the Experience Learning QEP initiative, the Office of Service-Learning, the Office of Online & Digital Programs, and the Teaching and Learning Center, TLI began an educational journey to further enhance the Volunteer experience.
Providing top-notch educational opportunities to UT students begins with providing resources and supportive services to UT faculty. Through TLI’s focus on evidence-based teaching and learning practices, we help engage faculty in the creation and implementation of educational experiences that are transformative, innovative, and outcomes focused.
As a unit within Academic Affairs, we champion:
- Excellence in teaching, learning, and assessment practices that foster student engagement and retention
- Reciprocal community-based learning that reflects UT’s land-grant mission
- High-quality online and hybrid education opportunities
