The CIRTL network offers many free online events and courses to promote teaching and learning in STEM higher education. All events fall under the following categories.

1) Fall 2016 Cross-Network Courses: CIRTL offers a variety of online courses that leverage the expertise and diversity of faculty from across our network. Registration for fall courses (except MOOCs) runs from August 1 through September 20. Priority registration is given to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and CIRTL alumni in STEM/SBE fields from Network institutions. All other applicants will be accepted on a space-available basis. Students will be notified of their enrollment status by September 21, 2016. Students who register by September 2 will be given early bird priority.

2) CIRTLCasts: These events focus on a single theme in teaching and learning each month. Fall 2014 sessions will discuss and interact with the following topics:

  • Promoting Diversity and Success in STEM education
  • The Academic Job Search
  • Teaching and Learning in the American Academic System: International Graduate Students

3) Teaching-as-Research (TAR) Capstone Series: Tune in to see what TAR projects other graduate students have completed around the country and connect with fellow participants!

4) CIRTL Reads Journal Club: Join in these monthly discussions about a specific journal article centered on a STEM education topic.

5) Summer Graduate Courses: These courses involve live sessions as well as online interactions that focus on effective teaching practices. UTA will be focusing this semester on the CIRTL College Classroom MOOC: An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching, and will be featuring a local learning community to accompany the event.
