Oregon State University is a member institution of the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) Network. The CIRTL Network is a consortium of 43 research-intensive institutions committed to preparing future faculty, primarily—although not exclusively—those in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) disciplines. CIRTL subscribes to three Core Ideas that are at the foundation of its work and guide OSU’s initiatives.

Focused on graduate student and postdoc teaching development but open to any OSU student or employee, CIRTL offers centralized courses, MOOCS, workshops, and webinars related to teaching effectiveness to those in any discipline. As a member institution, OSU is launching its own local initiative to complement CIRTL’s centralized offerings so that participants may receive nationally-recognized CIRTL credentials.

CIRTL levels

Three different CIRTL levels may be pursued: Associate, Practitioner, and Scholar. Please note that some courses listed are also required for the completion of the Graduate Certificate in College and University Teaching (GCCUT) program and may be used to satisfy both CIRTL and GCCUT.
