The Core Ideas of CIRTL

  • Teaching-as-Research

  • STEM Professor as Change Agent

    • Hypothesize, experiment, observe, analyze, improve

    • Self-sustained improvement of STEM education

  • Learning Community

  • Support growth in teaching and learning

    • Graduate student, post-doc, faculty community

    • Foundation for institutional and national change

  • Learning-through-Diversity

  • Excellence and diversity are necessarily intertwined

    • All students bring an array of experiences and skills

    • Learning of all students is enhanced if all engaged

    Teaching-as-Research

    Learning-through-Diversity

    Learning Community


    The CIRTL Network – Why?

    No single university can develop the future STEM faculty … but 100 universities can.

    No single university can know or prepare their students for the diversity of teaching needs across the nation.

    A learning community of universities can reap the benefits of collective experience, collaborative initiatives, and shared resources.


    The CIRTL Network – Why?

    • Advantages for member universities:

    • NSF proposal to establish local CIRTL programs

    • Diverse Cross-Network programs for grad students

    • and post-docs

    • Access to developed program resources, evaluation

    • instruments, and active community of peers

    • National dissemination channel for local successes

    • Leverage to enhance research funding proposals

    • National presence as leader in graduate education


    The Next Step
