CETL—CIRTL Learning Community
University of Rochester - CIRTL
Welcome to the University of Rochester's main Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) homepage. From this page you will be able to access program offerings, our calendar of events, and the larger CIRTL network.
CIRTL is an NSF Center for Learning and Teaching in higher education. It uses graduate education as the leverage point to develop a nationwide faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse student audiences as part of successful professional careers. CIRTL's goal is to improve undergraduate learning at every college and university, and thereby to increase diversity especially in STEM fields and the STEM literacy of the nation. The CIRTL Network is a leading resource for those searching for information about teaching, learning, or the scholarship of the two combined.
The UR CIRTL Learning Community strives to integrate and broaden current future faculty development activities for our graduate students. Internally, we provide high-engagement workshops, and also Teaching-as-Research and Learning-Through-Diversity opportunities, all of which harness UR expertise to prepare future faculty. Externally, as part of the CIRTL learning community of 20 institutions, UR graduate students have access to an unprecedented network of institutions and resources to enhance professional development opportunities for those interested in a career in academia.
