The Culturally Responsive Teaching Learning Community (CRTLC) is an opportunity for graduate students and post-doctoral scholars to reflect critically and engage issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the classroom. We will challenge our thinking, cultivate our curricular and pedagogical practices, share research and resources, and support our collective and respective journeys as educators for a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive society. We will foster a space that empowers both its members and ultimately, the students we serve.
Spring 2018: Applications are now available for spring 2018. Once accepted, we will request your preferences for meeting times and dates. To ensure equitable participation and engagement, the LC will be limited to 12 members. Members are selected based on the quality of sentiment expressed towards diversity in the application short essay questions.
For more information, check-out the spring 2018 syllabus. Fall 2017 schedule will be updated upon confirmation of meeting dates/times.

The CIRTL network offers two free, massive open online courses (MOOCs)
The IUPUI Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) will host a MCLC for the introductory MOOC in fall and the advanced MOOC in spring. MCLCs have been shown to increase MOOC completion rates by 50%, and participants have reported that the in-person discussions are valuable and motivating.
Fall 2017 MCLC dates: The MCLC for An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching will meet on the following Fridays from 3:00 - 4:00 pm: October 6 and 20, November 3 and 17. All meeting will be held in CTL located in the University Library : UL 1125M.
STEM departments with several interested participants are encouraged to host similar MCLC's facilitated by department faculty, graduate students, and/or postdocs. Please contact the CIRTL Team at IUPUI for more information for facilitating MCLCs.
The webinar on Introduction to CIRTL at IUPUI is available upon request.
