IUPUI and Indiana University, Bloomington have recently joined the Center for Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL), a network of 41 universities dedicated to the advancement of undergraduate education in STEM and other disciplines through the professional development of future faculty. CIRTL accomplishes this advancement through the core ideas of Teaching-as-Research, Learning Communities, and Learning Through Diversity.
CIRTL at IUPUI is a learning community of graduate students and postdocs to engage in the discussion and development of reflective and evidence-based teaching approaches with strategies that leverage student diversity and shared learning experiences. Graduate students can earn CIRTL Associate, CIRTL Practitioner, and CIRTL Scholar certifications through a free, self-paced badging program in Canvas. Students can use these badges on their CVs and in online career networking tools to showcase for prospective employers their CIRTL accomplishments.
Jointly led by the IU Graduate School Indianapolis, the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of Vice Chancellor for Research, CIRTL at IUPUI invites graduate students and postdocs to take advantage of a wide variety of local and cross-network CIRTL online programming.
