TLC Archives

Since 2007, Bellarmine’s Faculty Development Center staff has partnered with colleagues in over 30 colleges and universities each summer to share resources and ideas about teaching and learning. As a result of this annual teaching and learning collaboration (TLC), the Faculty Development staff send out a weekly “TLC message”.  These short, weekly messages contain a teaching tip, interesting activity, or helpful classroom strategy.   The most recent TLCs are listed below.
