Understand the fundamentals of qualitative research and how it differs from quantitative research. Events will focus on three key elements of qualitative research: why it matters, how to design a qualitative research project, and how to incorporate observational data into your work. Learn more
Hear graduate students and postdocs from across the CIRTL Network share the results of their Teaching-as-Research (TAR) projects in this online presentation session. TAR projects investigate questions about teaching and learning, including assessing the effectiveness of specific learning activities and tools, examining the learning process about a specific topic, or characterizing the student experience in the classroom. This event is an excellent opportunity for prospective and current TAR students to learn more about the process of carrying out a TAR project.
In this CIRTLCast Semiar series, learn how to build productive research mentoring relationships that foster inclusion and equity.
Are you thinking about taking on a Teaching-as-Research (TAR) project? Join us to hear from a panel of CIRTL alumni who will share their experience doing a TAR project—not the research they conducted, but what they learned from the process, and how they use what they learned in their current roles as postdocs and faculty.
In this CIRTLCast Semiar series, examine how social and cultural contexts shape the experiences of undergraduate women in STEM. In each week of this series, we will discuss the unique challenges faced by women in their educational trajectories. Despite efforts to broaden participation in STEM over the last few decades, women remain underrepresented in these fields. Across the series, we will explore how equity-oriented, inclusive practices can transform teaching and learning in STEM.
Practice navigating the challenging conversations you might have with a mentor or advisor when pursuing your individual development plan in this online workshop. The thought of approaching a mentor to talk about topics in an Individual Development Plan—such as academic progress, research timeframe, authorship, professional goal prioritization, and career aspiration—can be nerve-wracking and stressful. This workshop will present strategies and techniques to help you prepare for these difficult conversations, and to make them more productive when you do have them.
CIRTL Online Workshop: Faculty Advising in a R1 Setting - What You Need to Know and How to do it Well
Learn about developmental advising and explore how it can help engage and retain all types of students at research-intensive (R1) universities. Given that learning is a social process, relationships—especially those with faculty—are powerful tools that aid in students’ personal and professional development (Baker & Griffin, 2010).
