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

slide11
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.

slide12
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
