What's Happening Across Campus

CIRTL ON TRAC

The Organizational Network for Teaching as Research Advancement and Collaboration (ON-TRAC) at UT Arlington is a member of the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning, (CIRTL), a network of 25 national research institutions whose goal is to build a national faculty in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) committed to enhancing undergraduate STEM education. To do this, ON TRAC helps STEM graduate and postdoctoral students develop effective teaching strategies for diverse learners. Although teaching and learning in STEM disciplines is the emphasis, students, post-docs, and faculty in all disciplines are welcome to take advantage of available programming. Contact Dr. James Grover (CIRTL Director, Professor of Biology and Director Environmental and Earth Sciences) at grover@uta.edu or Lisa Berry (CIRTL Project Coordinator, Office of Graduate Studies) at lberry@exchange.uta.edu.

History

History is offering Teaching Circles for History faculty at all levels and History GTAs on quick (and low grading time) assessments for developing critical thinking skills, and teaching methods to reach low performing and low information students (those with limited exposure to US history, such as international students) in survey courses. 

History is also offering Professional Development workshops - hands on workshops for faculty and GTAs in History, including a "Blackboard basics for History courses" Future workshops about specific tools, such as Lecture Tools or Respondus, will be offered in the future. Contact Dr. Kim Breuer at breuer@uta.edu.
