TLI’s Empowering Learners Partnerships Collecting Applications for Spring Semester

Posted October 31st, 2013 at 10:07 am.

The following email has been sent to faculty and staff by Manager of Staff Education and Coordinator of Career and Professional Preparation Jessica Hollinger Vinson on Tuesday, Oct. 29.

Do you want to:

build a relationship with a student outside of the classroom?
teach a skill, talent or interest?
learn a new skill, talent or interest?

If you answered yes to these questions, apply for an Empowering Learners Partnership!  Partnerships will meet weekly during the spring semester.

Who can participate in the Empowering Learners Partnerships branch of the TLI?

Staff and faculty from all campus departments are eligible for participation in the TLI.

Participating in an Empowering Learners Partnership

Empowering Learners Partnerships (ELPs) provide the opportunity to participate in a unique reciprocal relationship with a staff, student, or faculty member (or occasionally in a small group). You and your partner(s) will take turns teaching and learning a skill or interest, allowing both of you to take on the roles of teacher and learner.

Weekly Partnership Meetings

Partnerships meet for 2 hours a week. You and your partner can decide if you want to meet for 2 hours once a week, or 1 hour twice a week.

What skills, talents, or interests do I have to offer?

All faculty, staff, and students who have an interest in building relationships and sharing knowledge are encouraged to participate in the TLI. Since the creation of the TLI, a wonderfully diverse range of skills and interests have been shared through partnerships:

Literacy skills
Foreign languages
Digital photography
Wood carving
Jazz appreciation
Arts and crafts
Continuing education
Citizenship test
Board/card games
…just to name a few.

If you are interested in participating in the TLI for the spring 2014 semester, apply now! An electronic application can be found here: .
