[cirtl-announce] This Fall: Lift Up Classroom Diversity & Enhance STEM Learning For All

By on September 18, 2018


The CIRTL Network

When faculty know how to build on the rich array of experiences, backgrounds, and skills found in any STEM/SBE classroom in higher ed, everyone benefits. This fall, CIRTL is running an online course and an online drop-in event series designed to help graduate students and postdocs explore diversity and develop approaches to learn through diversity in the STEM/SBE classroom.

Looking for something else? The CIRTL Network offers a wide range of programming to provide participants with professional development and to teach them about four pedagogical fundamentals: evidence-based teaching, learning through diversity, teaching-as-research, and learning communities.
