Loyola University Chicago

Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy

Teaching Effectiveness Seminar

The Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy and The Graduate School are partnering to offer the Teaching Effectiveness Seminar. The aims of the seminar are to provide information and skills for graduate students to be (1) be more effective instructors at Loyola and beyond (2) to have a positive impact on Loyola undergraduate student outcomes, and (3) to allow for the development of pedagogical practices in future careers as educators. The Seminar also exposes participants to Ignatian Pedagogy, anti-racist pedagogy, and student-centered design, FCIP’s three interconnected pedagogical approaches. 

Loyola's TES grows out of a larger movement in doctoral education to deepen students' teaching experience, expand their pedagogical repertoire, and provide them with professional support. These programs, supported nationally by organizations such as the Council of Graduate Schools, the Association of American Colleges and Universities, the Carnegie Institution, and the National Science Foundation, offer doctoral students a range of layered experiences that combine departmental and university-wide initiatives.   

Enrollment in the seminar is handled by The Graduate School. If you have any questions about the Teaching Effectiveness Seminar, please reach out to FCIP Co-Director Dr. Jessica Mansbach at jmansbach@luc.edu.
