Teaching & Learning Initiative

The Teaching & Learning Initiative (TLI) supports faculty members in providing excellent instruction that promotes student learning. Through this program, the Office of Academic Affairs and the Teaching and Learning Advisory Committee develop a variety of opportunities for Long Island University faculty members to share their perspectives, ideas and expertise concerning teaching within and among departments, colleges and schools, as well as across the University. We urge you to visit this site often and bookmark it to keep up with TLI-sponsored events and to learn more about all that your colleagues are accomplishing in and outside the classroom.

The TLI Newsletter is published biannually and features comprehensive information about teaching and learning across the campuses, in addition to featuring articles on best practices for the field of education.
