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:

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.


What is CIRTL?

The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) is a network founded in 2003 of 43 universities in the USA and Canada. Indiana University Bloomington and IUPUI became members of CIRTL in 2016. CIRTL's mission is to enhance excellence in undergraduate education through the development of a national faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse learners as part of successful and varied professional careers. CIRTL Network programming for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars is facilitated by member institutions and includes courses, workshops, events, and communities. The foundations for all CIRTL programming are the three core ideas of Teaching-as-Research (TAR), Learning Communities (LCs), and Learning-through-Diversity (LD)
