CIRTL@UCLA programming includes local courses and events on UCLA’s campus that are aligned with the CIRTL network learning outcomes. Participation in these courses contribute to CIRTL certification. These local learning communities provide all graduate students and postdoctoral scholars with a collaborative space to explore best practices in teaching.

Graduate Student Professional Development 495CE
The UCLA Center for Community Learning is excited to announce a professional development opportunity for graduate students. In Winter 2019, we will be offering a teaching practicum course on community-engaged pedagogy.
In this 495 seminar, you can expect to participate in lively discussions that (re)envision what graduate education for engaged, inclusive, action-oriented teaching and research could/should look like at UCLA–as well as interactive workshops designed to help you develop skills and strategies for integrating community partnerships into your teaching. Students who complete the course will receive 4 units of satisfactory/unsatisfactory credit on their transcripts. The course can also be applied toward the Graduate Certificate in Writing Pedagogy and may be applied toward CIRTL competencies for STEM education. Additional information about what you can expect from this seminar can be found in the attached overview.
In order to ensure that this seminar can foster active dialogue among all participants, space is limited. To secure your place, please fill out the Google Form below as soon as possible and no later than 5pm on November 30:
Tell us a little about your background, teaching interests, and availability:
This course is currently scheduled for Mondays from 12-1:50 but I’m open to shifting the time if a critical mass of students prefers another day/time (and provided that we can find a room). Please feel free to reach out with questions. We hope to work with you in Winter 2019!
This course can be applied to CIRTL Associate level certification.
