The Vanderbilt University Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (VU-CIRTL) is looking for participants in its teaching as research and tiered mentoring programs. VU-CIRTL is an NSF Center for STEM Learning and Teaching in higher education and was established in 2006.
The Teaching as Research (TAR) Program is where future faculty (graduate students and postdocs) perform activities designed to improve their teaching skills and expose them to evidence-based teaching and learning. 
The Tiered Mentoring Program focuses on helping participants navigate issues of identity and authority in a variety of teaching contexts, including classroom instruction and one-on-one mentoring in the lab or office. 
Opportunities exist for this summer as well as in the fall and next spring. Stipends are available for summer, fall, and spring participants that want to conduct teaching research.

Please spread the word about these programs far and wide as we want to increase participation across the entire university. Attached are flyers you can post as another way to get the message out.
Contact me at, Prof. Anita Mahadevan-Jansen at, or Ms. Jean Alley at with any questions.
