Teaching and Learning Conversations are delivered by TCU instructional staff to help enrich the TCU community. These events may take different formats—directed discussions of new pedagogies, structured conversations about issues affecting higher education, or workshops to implement emerging instructional strategies.

We know your time and knowledge is valuable, so The Koehler Center offers TCU instructional staff a small stipend to lead these events.

Instructional staff who lead a Teaching and Learning Conversation (50 minutes), compose a short (700–900 word) article for The Koehler Center’s Insights Magazine, and record a three-minute video overview discussing their topic will receive $200 when all items have been completed. (Multiple presenters can decide how they want to split the $200.)
