Teaching and Learning Institute

Robust professional development has been critical to supporting and sustaining Bunker Hill Community College's student success initiatives. The Teaching and Learning Institute (TLI) is a comprehensive professional development program intended to engage the prior understandings and experience of faculty, foster a culture of inquiry and evidence, develop a deeper foundation of the study of teaching and learning, and reinforce pedagogies and practices that foster student success.

Led by an advisory board of faculty and staff across all disciplines, the TLI is focused on facilitating a college‐wide dialogue and fostering proven practices in teaching, learning and student development. The TLI Advisory Board is made up of 21 members ‐ 10 Full-time Faculty, 2 Adjunct Faculty, 5 Professional Staff, 3 Administrators and 1 Student Representative (BHCC Student Trustee).

The 2016 Convocation featured the launch of the Teaching and Learning Institute as well as the revival Teaching for Our Time – BHCC’s peer-reviewed academic journal. After a 5 year hiatus, volume 8 of the journal will be released in September 2017. The TLI hosted a comprehensive three-day workshop for 30 faculty and staff titled “Communicating Outcomes for Student Success”. It also provided financial support for the BHCC Dialogue Series. As academic communities across the country identify ways to engage their campuses around issues of racial, cultural, gender and sexual identities, immigrants and immigration, and economic inequality, BHCC Dialogue Series - a two-year program of campus conversations, applies an academic lens to contemporary social justice issues impacting our communities and the lives of students, faculty and staff. The series comprised of an ongoing Reflective Practitioner Series; a Community Supper Series; a robust Library Guide; and Curriculum Integration - each part designed to better prepare and empower faculty to engage with students and colleagues around critical issues as they arise. More than faculty, staff and administrators participated in the series in 2016-2017.
