“How CIRTL Impacted My Career”: Final Event Thursday

By on June 28, 2021

This Thursday our event series on how CIRTL has impacted alumni careers concludes with a panel of alumni now working outside of academia in consulting, business, and government. If you’re interested in learning more about what career options are like outside of academia, or how CIRTL can build up your experience and skills while on the job market, join us on Thursday!

Looking ahead to July, we have seats remaining in our late July workshop on implicit leadership theories, designed for grad students and postdocs to help you unpack your own perspective around leadership in order to better understand your roles as learners, teachers, researchers, colleagues, mentors, and more.

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.

How CIRTL Impacted My Career: Hearing from Beyond Academia

Thursday, July 1
3-4PM AT / 2-3 PM ET / 1-2PM CT / 12-1PM MT / 11AM-12PM PT

Join us to hear CIRTL alumni reflect on how they came into their non-academic careers: what made them pursue this path; its benefits, stressors, and rewards; and how CIRTL shaped their interests, skills, and community. We’ll hear from alumni working in consulting, at the National Institutes of Health, and at BioQuest.



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.

Exploring Diversity in Implicit Leadership Theories and Their Role in Inclusive Teaching and Learning

2-3:30PM AT / 1-2:30PM ET / 12-1:30PM CT / 11AM-12:30PM MT / 10-11:30AM PT

Learn about implicit leadership theories (ILT) in this two-part workshop designed to help grad students and postdocs understand your own perceptions of leadership, and how those perceptions impact how you teach, how you work within departments, how you mentor, and more. Cap: 100.
