Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL)

Faculty Involvement

CIRTL at the University of Rochester strives to engage our graduate students and postdocs in teaching and learning activities, both online through the CIRTL network, and locally, through on-campus events and local learning communities. 

Getting Involved

**APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN FOR THE NEXT COHORT OF TAR FELLOWS**

We welcome faculty participation in our local CIRTL initiatives! Faculty can propose a project that emphasizes the instructional innovations that will be developed and the assessment of effectiveness for the TAR fellowship program. 

TAR fellows will be paid $1,000 to undertake the proposed project, under the mentorship of the faculty member. Faculty proposing TAR fellows projects should budget the $1,000 stipend for supporting the fellow (or more than $1,000 if more than one fellow is desired to work on the project).

Our goals of the CIRTL TAR fellows program are as follows:

  • To provide faculty with resources for designing and assessing curricular innovations
  • To provide graduate students and post-doctoral researchers with training and development in the design and assessment of teaching and learning activities
  • To benefit the learning of undergraduate students through the development and assessment of curricular innovations
