Become a CIRTL Practitioner

Completion of a small Teaching as Research (TAR) project or the Teaching Practicum results in recognition as a CIRTL Practitioner. Often, UBC TAR interns present and/or publish their findings and advance to become CIRTL Scholars. TAR projects are open to MSc, Ph.D. or post-doctoral fellows in any year of their program.

Are you a faculty member interested in supporting a TAR project but don’t have a potential intern in mind? Please feel free to propose your project on this page.

Additionally, the CIRTL SoTL Workshop. A 3-day teaching intensive workshop that combines an emphasis on learning evidence and theory-based approaches to teaching and learning with the opportunity to apply those theories in practice. It builds on concepts from FoP1 and ISW. Participating in the CSW is another opportunity for graduate students and postdocs to obtain valuable knowledge and practice on evidence-based teaching methods and receive CIRTL Practitioner status. Open to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

Once you have finished your project or the Teaching Practicum, you can fill out this form to get your CIRTL Practitioner status.
