Transforming Your Research Into Teaching (TYRIT) is a unique, hybrid course focused on learning the skills of course design and developing a college-level course based on the area of your research expertise. In this course, you will be matched with peers across the country who are developing courses in similar areas for peer review and inspiration. You will also have a learning community, either based out of your institution, or a cross-network learning community to have weekly synchronous meetings for discussion of your projects and what you’re learning. The course runs for 6 weeks (with an additional week for project presentations), has one one-hour meeting per week, and requires around 1.5–2 hours of self-directed video and project development work per week.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Write learning objectives for an educational goal and communicate level of understanding by using different verbs
- Design a course sequence that enhances thematic goals of your course
- Choose assessment strategies and consider how their validity or reliability might be improved
- Choose resources and develop instructional approaches that are inclusive of diverse students
More information about this course can be found on the CIRTL website.
