CIRTL Network

With our spring semester officially over, CIRTL is looking ahead to summer, when we’ll be running two online workshops and our member institutions will be hosting two in-person teaching institutes.

In addition to our own programming, many of our members run local activities that, while not official CIRTL programming, are open for broader participation. This summer, Cornell University is hosting a Teaching-as-Research conference; register by April 30 to attend.

CIRTL Summer Workshops

Developing a CV or Resume
June 22 and 29: 11AM-12:30PM ET/10-11:30AM CT/9-10:30AM MT/8-9:30AM PT

In this two-part online workshop, participants will learn how CVs and resumes vary for academic positions, non-academic positions, and grant applications. After learning about strong CV content, style, and organization, participants will develop long form academic CVs and short form resumes, and then refine them through a collaborative peer review process. Registration will be open from 11AM Central Time on May 29 through June 14. Cap of 60 students.

Level Up: Designing a Game-Based Learning Environment (Baltimore, MD)
June 27: 1-3PM ET/12-2PM CT/11AM-1PM MT/10AM-12PM PT

In this online workshop, we will look at the various elements of game design that can help engage and motivate students such as collaboration, autonomy, purpose, competition, feedback, and scaffolding. As a group, we will explore activities that are based around familiar game formats, design frameworks around existing games repurposed to address specific learning objectives, and examine how to embed game structures within a course’s design. Registration will be open from 11AM Central Time on June 5 through June 19. Cap of 100 students.

CIRTL Summer Institutes
