The CIRTL Summer Institute is an intensive teaching development institute that combines an emphasis on learning evidence and theory-based approaches to teaching and learning with the opportunity to apply those theories in practice. In this institute, grad students and postdocs will gain foundational knowledge in evidence-based teaching and learning theory and apply insights in three mini-teaching sessions using an experiential learning based lesson planning approach. Over the course of 8 days and a mix of synchronous sessions and asynchronous work, you will explore topics like novice/expert learning, evidence-based approaches to goals and objectives, assessment, active learning, and inclusivity.

The CIRTL Summer Institute is hosted by the University of British Columbia’s Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology, and is grounded in the Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) model, an internationally recognized certificate in teaching that includes three opportunities to give lessons to your peers, and receive facilitated feedback in oral, written and video formats.
