~ Excerpted from a July 28, 2023 CIRTL Network Announcement~

Cornell University is an institutional member of the North American Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (or CIRTL) Network. CIRTL provides a variety of online programming designed to help aspiring faculty learn how to teach effectively and inclusively, and how to prepare for and navigate the academic job market. This fall, online CIRTL programming includes three courses, additional Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), ten workshops, and an event series.

Registration is now open (starting August 14), and space-limited courses on new topics may fill quickly, so we highlight information about these below. When registering for space-limited programming, attendees and alumni from CIRTL member institutions receive enrollment priority, and unaffiliated registrants are enrolled as space allows – please indicate your Cornell affiliation at registration.
