Get involved

There are various ways in which to engage with CIRTL@UBC as a graduate student, postdoctoral fellow, or faculty member. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows can work towards becoming a CIRTL Associate, Practitioner and Scholar:

CIRTL Associate
Recognize the role of the CIRTL pillars in effective teaching and learning. At UBC, we offer several pathways to become a CIRTL Associate through participating in Foundations of Pedagogy, Instructional Skills Workshop, Postdoc internship or the Summer Teaching Institute.
CIRTL Practitioner
Scholarly teaching that builds on the CIRTL pillars to demonstrably improve learning. At UBC, we coordinate Teaching as Research (TAR) internships.  We also offer the practicum component of our Postdoc internship.
CIRTL Scholar
Scholarship that advances teaching and learning under peer review. At UBC, TAR Interns present and/or publish their TAR findings to all-university, regional, national or international conferences. Successful participants of the Certificate Program in Advanced Teaching and Learning also become CIRTL Scholars.

Faculty can engage as mentors/partners for CIRTL Associates undertaking TAR projects.
