CIRTL Network Courses

Students at a symposium

Online graduate courses from the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) Network allow you to interact with faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students from nearly 40 research universities. All participants who successfully complete course activities and assignments will receive a letter of completion. Optional local credit is available for some online CIRTL courses upon request, through a graduate individual study course number at the participant’s home institution. Cornell graduate students or postdocs interested in enrolling for independent study credit should contact Dr. Colleen McLinn at by the second week of the semester.
