NEW for 2015-- Wynalda Teaching and Learning Institute and Davenfest will be held back-to-back at the Lettinga campus in Grand Rapids, MI. 

TLI will continue to offer multiple livestreaming and online options to enable all faculty to participate in the event.

This event would not be possible without the hard work of the TLI Planning and Implementation Committee. Please join me in thanking them for their dedication!

Looking forward to talking about teaching at TLI,
