Teaching-as-Research (TAR) Seminar

Teaching-as-Research (TAR), or the reflective use of research methods to improve teaching and student learning, is at the heart of CIRTL. In this 1-credit spring seminar, participants learn to become reflective teacher-scholars by asking questions about student learning and developing a small classroom research project. See some of the excellent questions our past TAR participants have been asking below and get inspired to create your own!

Interested students must either have their Associate Level certification or equivalent knowledge to take this seminar. You do not need to be actively teaching a course, but you must be willing to work with a faculty member on a project.

If you're interested in participating in the Teaching-as-Research Seminar, currently offered each spring as an IA699 independent study (1-credit), contact course instructors Byron Hempel (byronhempel@arizona.edu) or Kristin Winet (kwinet@arizona.edu).
