Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL)

Brown University joins the CIRTL Network!

Brown University is proud to announce its recent membership in the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) Network! The CIRTL Network is a consortium of research universities dedicated to advancing inclusive education by preparing future faculty and promoting the use of evidence-based teaching practices. By becoming a member of the CIRTL Network, Brown University graduate students and postdocs gain access to a wide range of resources, including professional development programs, teaching workshops, and learning communities dedicated to improving undergraduate education, in addition to receiving formal recognition for your participation in network activities. If you are interested in learning more about CIRTL@Brown and participating in upcoming CIRTL events, please complete this interest form

Who can participate?
The CIRTL program is open to any graduate student, postdoc, and faculty member interested in professional development. Once you complete the interest form, you will be added to a Canvas course for announcement of CIRTL events, programs, and opportunities.

How does CIRTL work? 
You have the opportunity to participate in single programs or semester-long courses. Your participation will be tracked in order for you to be given a certificate for completing portions of the CIRTL program. Unlike the Sheridan Teaching Seminar, Course Design Seminar and Teaching Consultant Seminar, CIRTL certificates are not transcripted. 

Where do CIRTL programs take place?
All workshops and programs are offered virtually, with many in an asynchronous format. All events require pre-registration. In addition, there will be some opportunities to engage with Brown’s local learning community.

How do I get involved?
