Every year, the CIRTL Network showcases what graduate students and postdocs at top universities are doing to become better STEM teachers. These students take on year-long Teaching-as-Research (TAR) projects designed to test out innovative new approaches in STEM/SBE classrooms. This afternoon, 18 TAR students will report their findings back to the Network in our biggest event of the year.

This event will be an excellent opportunity for new students to learn more about the TAR process, for local TAR leaders to learn about what other institutions are doing, and for everyone to learn more about what the CIRTL Network does.

Want to attend? The session will take place online in Blackboard Collaborate; you will need a computer with speakers or headphones, and a reliable internet connection in order to attend. Once you RSVP, you will receive access to the online meeting room where the event will take place.
