Transforming Your Research Into Teaching

Transforming Your Research Into Teaching (TYRIT) is a seven-week program for graduate students and postdocs to sharpen their pedagogical skills and develop a course syllabus based upon their research interests. Offered by the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) Network and Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching, each week of the program focuses on a different element of course design, allowing participants to progressively build a course of their choosing. Participants will leave the program with a CIRTL Associate Level Certificate, a fully developed course syllabus, and a presentation on the course that they can include in their teaching portfolio and present to various audiences, such as disciplinary colleagues and hiring committees.

TYRIT runs from the week of June 15 through the week of July 27, with weekly meetings held via Zoom on Wednesdays, 3:30-4:30 PM CDT (or, if needed, Tuesdays, 10:00 -11:00 AM CDT.)

Applications are accepted via Qualtrics through Monday, June 8. For more information, please contact Lauren Woods, assistant director for CIRTL at Northwestern, or Rob Hill, postdoctoral scholar at the Searle Center.
