CIRTL workshops offer the opportunity to engage with faculty, staff, and students at other universities around a specific topic, without the time commitment of a course. Workshops typically involve some pre- and post-session work. Space is limited and advanced registration is required to attend these online workshops from the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) Network.
Each workshop opens for registration at the start of the term (fall, spring, or summer), and closes when it reaches capacity. Some workshops may also have specific audiences. As a participant from a CIRTL Network member institution, your registration receives priority for any programs that are offered (as long as spots are available).
As part of the interview process for a faculty position in the U.S., you may be asked to lead a teaching demonstration.

This workshop meets online in Zoom on Wednesday, January 31 at 1-2:30pm ET. Registration opens January 8. No cap.

Registration opens Monday, January 8 and closes when capacity is reached. Cap: 15.

The workshop meets online in Zoom on Mondays, March 11 and March 25 at 12-1:30pm ET. Registration opens Monday, February 5 and closes when capacity is reached. Cap: 40.
