Students and faculty participate in TLI programming and events.


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

The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
