pre-TAR seminar

As part of our TAR internship program, we offer a pre-TAR workshop series. Participation is open to all prospective TAR Interns and will support your understanding of all elements of your TAR project. This includes identifying a challenge to student learning, formulating a research question, research methods and situating your TAR project in the discipline-based educational research.

Workshop 1 will facilitate your development of a high-quality TAR project proposal that you can use in your application for the TAR GSA.


  • CIRTL Associate training
  • Confirmed registration for an ISW before the TAR GSA deadline (for non CIRTL-Associates)

Beyond your knowledge from your CIRTL Associate training, you are not required to have prerequisite knowledge. We focus the workshop level to those who have never pursued qualitative or mixed-method research (typically STEM)


We will be hosting our pre-TAR workshop, Developing a a TAR/SoTL Research Question at the Graduate Students in Teaching Mini-conference on April 28th.  To register, fill out the form here.
