Additionally, there are 3 monthly special topics series offered by the CIRTL Network: Teaching as Research Capstone Seminar Series, Teaching in the US Series, and CIRTL Reads Journal Club on STEM Teaching.
This series is designed to introduce the participants to a diverse range of successful innovative teaching methods that faculty have developed to improve undergraduate writing in science and engineering subjects and to stimulate the participants to develop their own innovations to prepare students to be successful writers and communicators during their professional careers. Emphasis will be placed on the process of how the methods were developed possibly through cross-disciplinary collaboration, conducted, evaluated and then the results communicated to others.
