Winter and Summer Institutes

The Institutes offer the La Salle community opportunities to engage in sustained conversations about pedagogy, curriculum, assessment, learning technologies, community-engaged teaching and learning, the scholarship of teaching and learning, and other professional development areas. Each Institute features speakers who offer invitations to deepen our teaching philosophies, diversify our teaching strategies, and consider how we bridge teaching and research. Institutes are open to all faculty and staff. (Student co-presenters are welcome.)

Mark your calendars for the remote 2021 Winter Institute on January 6 and 7, 2021. More details on programming and registration will follow.


Remote Teaching and Learning

The De La Salle Institute, together with the Instructional Design Team and Connelly Library, designed and conducted a roster of summer training workshops and conversations. All Summer 2020 training sessions were recorded. Some subsequent Fall 2020 trainings were also recorded. All recordings are posted on Canvas in the DLSI’s Training and Workshops Course and/or in the Canvas Training Hub. The recordings will be available only to La Salle faculty and staff, and will be used only for training purposes.


Community-Engaged Teaching & Learning

Join opportunities to learn together with colleagues through reading cohorts and informal coffee/tea sessions.

Access opportunities for teaching and learning beyond the traditional classroom via Explorer Cafés and related programming.

Many of the sessions require registration or access via a Zoom meeting link. Most of these details are available in the event posting. If you are having any trouble finding this information, contact
