I Completed My IDP… Now What webinar + more, April CIRTL programs

Posted by on Monday, April 2, 2018 in Announcements .

CIRTL is providing many great opportunities this month to tune in and learn! Check out the upcoming offerings:

 

Interested in individual development plans, inclusive teaching, or Teaching-as-Research? This month we're running workshops and drop-in events on all three topics! Next month we're hosting a drop-in event series on qualitative research. Also next month, our summer teaching institutes start. Registration is already open for some institutes, and we recommend signing up early since space fills up fast.

April Events & Workshops

I Completed My IDP…Now What? (workshop)

Practice navigating the challenging conversations you might have with a mentor or advisor when pursuing your individual development plan. No cap. Register by April 8.

Inclusive Teaching in Science (drop-in event)
4/12: 2-3PM ET / 1-2PM CT / 12-1PM MT / 11AM-12PM PT

Join us to hear a panel of current and future STEM faculty and undergraduate students examine policies and practices that impact inclusive teaching, reflect on how curricula across STEM disciplines consider student diversity, and discuss best practices for inclusive learning, and more. This is the first event in our four-part series on inclusive STEM teaching.

All-Network TAR Presentations (drop-in event)
4/18: 5-6:30 PM ET / 4-5:30PM CT / 3-4:30PM MT / 2-3:30 PM PT

Hear graduate students and postdocs from across the CIRTL Network share the results of their Teaching-as-Research (TAR) projects in this online presentation session. This event is an excellent opportunity for prospective and current TAR students to learn more about the process of carrying out a TAR project. We also encourage local TAR leaders and CIRTL leaders to attend to learn more about what's happening across the Network.

Inclusive Teaching in Engineering and Technology (drop-in event)
4/19: 2-3PM ET / 1-2PM CT / 12-1PM MT / 11AM-12PM PT

How can inclusive teaching support underrepresented students in engineering and technology? In this panel of undergraduate and graduate students and faculty we will reflect on inclusion and diversity in these traditionally male-dominated fields. This is the second event in our four-part series on inclusive STEM teaching.

Inclusive Teaching in Mathematics and Informatics (drop-in event)
4/26: 2-3PM ET / 1-2PM CT / 12-1PM MT / 11AM-12PM PT

Hear a panel of current and future faculty, and undergraduate students discuss how instructors can identify and combat stereotype threat, consider how the shifting demographics of informatics professors affect instruction in the discipline, and identify how instructors can incorporate inclusive teaching practices in key courses. This is the third event in our four-part series on inclusive STEM teaching.

Reflections from IUPUI’s Culturally Responsive Teaching Learning Community (drop-in event)
5/2: 2-3PM ET / 1-2PM CT / 12-1PM MT / 11AM-12PM PT

Hear graduate students in IUPUI’s Culturally Responsive Teaching learning community reflect on their experiences in the community, how those experiences have shaped their dispositions toward inclusive teaching and learning, and how inclusive teaching and learning can vary across STEM disciplines. This is the last event in our four-part series on inclusive STEM teaching.

 

May Events

Why Do A Qualitative Study? (drop-in event)

5/3: 2-3PM ET / 1-2PM CT / 12-1PM MT / 11AM-12PM PT
Explore the fundamental differences between qualitative orientations and more common research designs in STEM. Learn about the theoretical foundations behind qualitative research, and come away with a greater understanding for how and why qualitative research looks and feels different. This event is the first in our three-part series on qualitative research design.

Flexible Design and the Rigor Needed (drop-in event)

5/10: 2-3PM ET / 1-2PM CT / 12-1PM MT / 11AM-12PM PT
Learn why qualitative research is called “flexible” design, why flexibility is needed in qualitative research, and what research rigor looks like in a qualitative context. Understand what it takes to design a qualitative inquiry question and a qualitative research project, and learn the difference between research rigor in quantitative versus qualitative designs. This event is the second in our three-part series on qualitative research design.

Events Becoming Sherlock: How To Master the Art of Observational Data (drop-in event)

5/17: 2-3PM ET / 1-2PM CT / 12-1PM MT / 11AM-12PM PT
Dig into the tool that is at the heart of qualitative research: the observation. Building off of our previous discussion of research rigor, we will discuss how observational data can add a richness to your research, and participants will learn the basics of observational data collection. Participants will take part in a brief observation exercise and practice the art of taking field notes. This is the last event in our three-part series on qualitative research design.
