The CIRTL Network
CIRTL’s fall term begins this week! This morning we’re hosting a drop-in, online event on bias in STEM, this week our MOOC , on evidence-based STEM teaching begins (it’s not too late to sign up or to host an MCLC!), and this Friday early bird registration closes for our upcoming online workshop on drafting an individual development statement (regular registration opens next Monday).

Fall 2018 MOOC
CIRTL MOOCs take place on the EdX platform and use video-based modules, discussion boards, and peer-reviewed assignments to teach participants about evidence-based STEM teaching. Registration is required; there is no cost to participate and no enrollment cap. For more information, visit the CIRTL MOOC website.
MOOC-Centered Learning Communities (MCLCs)

Interested in facilitating an MCLC on your local campus? Currently eight campuses have MCLCs planned for the fall: University of British Columbia, University of Georgia – Griffin Campus, University of Wisconsin-Madison, University at Buffalo, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Yale University, and University of Nebraska-Lincoln. If you are interested in being an MCLC facilitator please register at http://stemteachingcourse.org/mooc-centered-learning-communities-mclc/mclc-facilitators to receive more information from the MOOC’s teaching team.
