Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL) Network

The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) is an NSF Center for Learning and Teaching in higher education. CIRTL uses graduate education as the leverage point to develop a national STEM faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse student audiences as part of successful professional careers. The goal of CIRTL is to improve the STEM learning of all students at every college and university, and thereby to increase the diversity in STEM fields and the STEM literacy of the nation.

JHU Teaching Academy

The Teaching Academy is a University-wide program designed to teach graduate students and postdoctoral fellows about the fundamentals of pedagogy and effective teaching practices, offering a competitive advantage for those seeking their first faculty appointments.

How It Works

The Teaching Academy is composed of three phases:
  • Phase One: Introductory workshops and sessions covering the basics of pedagogy and research-driven teaching methods
  • Phase Two: Complete at least one activity that allows you to develop your own instruction materials (ie, syllabus, learning exercises).
  • Phase Three: Teach in the classroom!

A Teaching Academy certificate is earned at completion of these phases . An interested candidate may also do a capstone project Teaching-as-Research (TAR) project.

Teaching Academy East Baltimore Teaching Topics and Tapas Workshop Series

The Teaching Topics and Tapas Workshop Series provides light fare, drinks and the opportunity to discuss teaching topics with guest faculty! Intended for those with little or no formal pedagogical training, these workshops are designed to prepare instructors to teach effectively at the university level. Open to all graduate students and post-doctoral fellows regardless of division.

For PFFTA participants, attending 6 Teaching Topics and Tapas sessions (or a total of 6 in combination with the Eyes-on-Teaching Workshops) may count as your Phase I Associate level activity. East Baltimore Campus Teaching Topics and Tapas Workshops are listed on the Teaching Academy Events page.
