Coming Soon: Leadership Workshop & Course Building Event

By on July 13, 2021

Our summer programming wraps up this month, but we still have two offerings open for registration: a two-part workshop on understanding leadership theories in order to strengthen your work as a teacher, mentor, colleague, and more; and a drop-in event on building a course from your area of research expertise. Both take place the last week of the month – keep reading for more info!

Beyond CIRTL, our colleagues at The Postdoc Academy are running an online course to guide postdocs through career-oriented professional development. The course starts July 19 and lasts 7 weeks.

Featured CIRTL Network Programming

CIRTL runs online courses, workshops, events, and more to teach STEM grad students and postdocs effective, inclusive, evidence-based approaches to teaching and learning.


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.

Designing a Course Based on Your Research Expertise

Are you interested in learning more about course design? Have you ever wanted to turn your research topic into a course? Join us to hear a panel of grad students and postdocs share their own experiences building a course based on their fields of research!



Workshops have live, real-time online sessions and require independent work outside of those meetings. Workshops can have one, two, or three online sessions (multi-session workshops typically have one session per week). Registration is required; STEM grad students and postdocs from CIRTL institutions receive enrollment priority.
