What is CIRTL@IUB?
CIRTL@IUB supports undergraduate education through the professional development of future faculty. The campus program is jointly led by the IUB Graduate Office and the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning. CIRTL@IUB:
- acts as a virtual and in-person hub to connect graduate students and postdocs to online workshops, courses, and communities facilitated through the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning;
- offers local programming aligned with CIRTL Program Outcomes;
- provides digital badges through our self-enrolling CIRTL@IUB Canvas course acknowledging achievement of Associate, Practitioner, and Scholar CIRTL learning outcomes by completing local and cross-network programming requirements.
The CIRTL@IUB learning community was launched in Fall 2016 and includes Indiana University Bloomington graduate students, postdocs, and faculty in STEM and other disciplines participating in both local and cross-network CIRTL activities. They engage in the discussion and development of reflective and evidence-based teaching approaches using strategies that leverage student and instructor diversity and shared learning experiences. Participants can gain competitive advantage in academic job searches by showcasing their CIRTL accomplishments to prospective employers.
