Fall 2018 Online Drop-In Events

Events have live, real-time online sessions; event series include a handful of events that revolve around a unifying theme in STEM teaching and learning. Events run on a drop-in basis and do not require advance registration. Participants can attend as many or as few events as they like in a given series.

All-Network Teaching-as-Research Presentations

Wednesday, 11/28: 5-6:30PM ET / 4-5:30PM CT / 3-4:30PM MT / 2-3:30PM PT

Join us for CIRTL’s fall All-Network presentation session as dozens of TAR practitioners from across the nation share their teaching-as-research findings. Take this opportunity to learn more about Teaching-as-Research in general, and to learn about exciting work that others in the Network are doing.
