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

Overview


CIRTL
  • Establishing interdisciplinary learning communities at every network university, each founded on the CIRTL core ideas and each effectively preparing graduates-through-faculty to use and improve best practices in STEM teaching and learning with attention to diverse student audiences
  • Establishing a cross-network learning community by which graduates-through-faculty across the network are better prepared for teaching as a consequence of the diversity of the universities
  • Fostering transitions from the network learning communities into faculty positions that sustain the concepts, practices, and attitudes developed while graduate students or postdocs
  • Enhancing graduate education in teaching and learning at universities beyond the CIRTL network
