CU-CIRTL Certificate Program
Offered as part of national initiatives to advance quality teaching in higher education, CIRTL certificates are an increasingly recognizable credential in today’s competitive academic job market.
CIRTL Associates have demonstrated knowledge of effective teaching and research-based practices in a variety of learning environments. Participants at this level of achievement are acknowledged for their commitment to learning and engaging with the core principles that enhance evidence-based teaching.
CIRTL Practitioners have not only studied the principles of evidence-based teaching and the CIRTL Core Ideas, but have also begun to implement them in their own teaching by designing and implementing an evidence-based teaching project, either as a pilot project or through a Teaching as Research course or fellows program.
CIRTL Scholars have demonstrated engagement with the scholarship, theory, and implemenentation of Teaching as Research and have completed a full-scale Teaching as Research project, including proposal development, IRB review, data collection and analysis, and presentation of their work beyond Cornell, or publication.
