This Week for Graduate Students: Upcoming in January: Teaching as Research Seminar

by | Dec 19, 2023

Looking ahead: Teaching as Research Seminar

The online Teaching as Research Seminar (TaRS) trains participants to assess the impact of teaching interventions in the classroom. Over the course of these four asynchronous modules, participants gain proficiency in the Teaching as Research (TaR) method by defining an original research question, exploring data collection and assessment tools, and drawing on the support of peers and the instructor to draft a complete TaR proposal. The seminar culminates in the presentation of these proposals to the seminar cohort.

The Teaching as Research Seminar will run online from January 22 to March 3.

CTL will accept applications for the Spring 2024 run of TaRS from January 2 – 12. For more information about this seminar, email us at
