About Techniques in Learning & Teaching

Techniques in Learning and Teaching is the blog space of the Center for Educational Innovation at the University of Minnesota.  We post longer-form essays each Monday, sometime in the late afternoon in the US Central Time Zone.  We add occasional short Words on Wednesdays – or WOW posts – to highlight another blog, a recent teaching / learning article, a great learning / teaching moment we’ve observed, or an idea someone’s openly testing out.

Our bloggers include faculty, instructors, teaching assistants and adjunct/community instructors working within the University of Minnesota 5-campus system, and also university teachers teaching beyond these campuses, this state, this country.   Our aim is to write about learning and teaching in higher education, to think with – and because of – colleagues from right here and from across the world of higher education.  Our writers aim to offer insightful, research-based, locally tested, globally minded and timely learning/teaching essays.

To join in as a TILT blogger, send an email query – including the idea you’d like to pursue – to our email: uminnteachlearn@gmail.com.
