Teaching-as-Research is a deliberate, systematic, and reflective approach used by STEM instructors to develop and implement teaching practices that advance the learning experiences and outcomes of students and teachers. To learn more about Teaching-as-Research, explore the three links at right (CIRTL Core Ideas, Introduction to TAR, Students answer the question "What is TAR?"). In this event, graduate students and postdocs from across the CIRTL Network will share the results of their Teaching-as-Research (TAR) projects, in which they investigated questions about teaching and learning, including projects that assess the effectiveness of specific learning activities and tools, uncover the learning process about a specific topic, or characterize the student experience in the classroom.
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.
