On August 1, 2021, UConn became the newest institutional member to join the Center for Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL). CIRTL is a network of 42 top PhD-producing universities committed to improving the preparation of future faculty (GA’s and Post-Docs) through evidence-based professional development programming. UConn’s institutional membership opens up extensive cross-network programming for graduate students (i.e. virtual webinars, workshops, courses) from network partners. There is no cost for students to join. To get started, interested graduate students should create an account to access programming.
In the coming months we will be communicating additional details about UConn specific CIRTL programming that focus on teaching as research, evidence-based teaching, learning communities, and learning through diversity and how various levels of student participation can lead to nationally recognized individual level accomplishments as a CIRTL Associate, CIRTL Practitioner, and CIRTL Scholar.
