Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning at Stanford
Stanford University has joined the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL) network. CIRTL’s mission is to “enhance excellence in undergraduate education through development of a national faculty committed to implementing and advancing evidence-based teaching practices for diverse learners as part of successful and varied professional careers.”
CIRTL values learner-centered education, equity and inclusion, diversity and representation, collaboration, intellectual generosity, inclusive excellence and innovation, and reflective decision-making. We are excited that Stanford will now be able to utilize this network to bring more opportunities for professional development in teaching and learning to our graduate students, postdocs and other interested instructors.
This opportunity is being offered to the community through a collaboration between CTL, the Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education, Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, and Stanford Introductory Studies.
CIRTL core ideas
Learning-through-diversity capitalizes on the rich array of experiences, backgrounds, and skills among undergraduates and graduates-through-faculty to enhance the learning of all. It recognizes that excellence and diversity are necessarily intertwined.
Teaching-as-research is the deliberate, systematic, and reflective use of research methods by instructors to develop and implement teaching practices that advance the learning experiences and outcomes of both students and teachers.
Learning communities bring together groups of people for shared learning, discovery, and generation of knowledge. To achieve common learning goals, a learning community nurtures functional relationships among its members.
Stanford campus CIRTL events will be offered starting in the 2021-2022 academic year. Please check back for more information. In the meantime, you are encouraged to make a CIRTL account to enable you to access network-wide resources and events.

The CIRTL network is comprised of many member institutions across the United States and Canada. See the full list of other member institutions here.
