CIRTL at Cornell

CIRTL Workshops

Online CIRTL workshops offer the opportunity to engage with experts across the CIRTL Network from your own device, without the more intensive time commitment of a course. Space is limited and advanced registration is required to attend these workshops from the national Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) Network. Each workshop opens for registration about a month in advance and closes about one week before the workshop’s first meeting date. Workshops will involve some pre- and post-session work.

Contact cirtl@cornell.edu with questions or to borrow equipment such as webcams and microphones.
