New MOOC on teaching & Learning offered by ON-TRAC/CIRTL

Members of the UT Arlington teaching community are invited to participate in a new teaching and learning MOOC (massive open, online course) from October 6, 2014 to November 23, 2014.  Not your average MOOC, this MOOC includes local learning communities. As a member of the NSF-funded CIRTL Network (Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning), the UT Arlington ON-TRAC program is assisting with organizing local learning communities to support the CIRTL Network MOOC. While the CIRTL Network’s focus is undergraduate STEM education, participants from non-STEM fields will glean much from the teaching and learning MOOC. For further informiaton, visit the MOOC's registration site. You can also learn more by contacting Lisa Berry in the Office of Graduate Studies.
