September at CIRTL:
Course, MOOC, and Workshop Registration
Course registration is open through Monday, September 25; register by September 18 to receive early bird priority. MOOC registration is open until October 2, when the MOOC begins. Workshop registration opens approximately 3 weeks before a workshop takes place, and stays open for 2 weeks; 3 workshops will be opening for registration later this month.
All courses and workshops have enrollment caps, so registration does not guarantee enrollment. Anyone can register, but STEM/SBE grad students and postdocs from CIRTL institutions receive priority. You'll need an account on our website to register, and we'll refer to the institution, discipline, and role listed in your profile to help determine your registration priority.
