Transforming Your Research into Teaching (TYRIT) Seminar

The TYRIT Seminar is a free 7-session workshop series run by the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning designed to expose you to the basic elements of course design. Over the course of this workshop series, you will design a course syllabus and course unit based on your current area of research interest. This workshop series is open to MFAs, PhDs, and Post-docs from any academic discipline. At the end of the workshop series, you will present your course to the group. This workshop series is co-hosted by Indiana University and the University of Iowa. Detailed information about this program is available on the CIRTL site. Applications are due Friday, May 27, 11:59 PM ET.

Successful completion of TYRIT satisfies the Seminar requirement of the Advanced Track of the Teaching Development Program.
