The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning invites NU postdocs to participate in the upcoming online discussions and in-person Mentored Discussions of Teaching (MTD) sessions. The CIRTL Cross Network Annual Calendar of Events is now available. For more information, please check the website or contact Rob Linsenmeier or Nancy Ruggeri.

CIRTLCast sessions - one-hour, once-a-week throughout the academic year. Sessions are organized around a monthly theme covering some aspect of STEM, pedagogy, and diversity:

  • Individual Development Plan Workshop - November 17th; Registration now open until November 3rd. This special workshop is designed to help attendees learn how to conceptualize, draft, and act on their own Individual Development Plan (IDP). Having an IDP won't just help you stay on track to meet your professional goals, it can help you stand out to potential employers, too. A growing number of academic institutions expect their grad students and postdocs to have an IDP, and many federal agencies require their employees to have one, too. Register for the workshop here. (Please note that the workshop will require some preparatory work before the 17th, and some wrap-up work afterwards).
  • New 2015-16 schedule now available here
    • Octobers's topic is Fostering Critical Thinking in the STEM Classroom (12pm CT on October 21 and 28th). More details here.
    • November's topic is Building a Rewarding Academic Career (12pm CT on Nov. 4, 11 and 18).  More details here.
  • Access archive of 2014-15 sessions here
  • Mentored Discussions of Teaching:  Check out the MDT webpage to find out more information. Fall 2015 MDT application cycle is now closed. Questions? Contact Rob Linsenmeier (Leader, CIRTL at Northwestern; Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Neurobiology) or Rachael Baiduc, Associate Evaluator, Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching.
  • Teaching Colloquium Series for all interested graduate students, postdocs, and faculty. For more information, please check the Searle Center website or contact Rob Linsenmeier (Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Neurobiology) or Nancy Ruggeri (Associate Director of Graduate Programs at the Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching).

Fall 2015 Courses: Registration opened July 20th

CIRTL courses are an opportunity to engage in an interactive and synchronous or hybrid online learning experience with other students and instructors from across the CIRTL Network. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in a STEM or SBE (social, behavioral, economic) field and from a CIRTL Network institution are given priority registration.  Please e-mail CIRTL staff with any questions or concerns about the CIRTL courses.
