Washington University faculty in STEM are involved in all levels of the WU-CIRTL learning community.
Faculty from STEM departments, as well as staff from The Teaching Center and CIRCLE, serve on the WU-CIRTL advisory committee.
Washington University faculty members teach departmental professional-development courses for graduate students and postdoctral appointees in STEM, and they mentor graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in teaching and in teaching-as-research projects. Washington University faculty can participate in the national CIRTL Network by hosting coffee hours and teaching seminars and courses available at http://www.cirtl.net.
In addition, Washington University faculty participate in Teaching Center workshops, consultations, and symposia on teaching (including i teach). Faculty also have opportunities to develop and conduct their own teaching-as-research projects--whether through participation in the STEM Educational Research Group, through collaboration with CIRCLE, or in the development of grant-funded educational projects.
Washington University faculty in STEM actively contribute to developing the next generation of scientists by mentoring high-school students, undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows in laboratory research, and they participate in outreach programs including Catalysts for Change: Gaining Momentum for Women in STEM Fields and a wide range of projects in collaboration with the Institute for School Partnership.
