What is Teaching as Research (TAR)?

Teaching as Research, as defined by the national Center for the Integration of
Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL), is the “deliberate, systematic, and reflective use of research methods... to develop and implement teaching practices that advance the learning experiences and outcomes of both students and teachers.” (

The Teaching as Research National Conference brings together those interested in presenting their own research on teaching and those interested in learning more about research that has been conducted by students and faculty on their own campuses to inform and improve teaching and learning.

Overview of the Teaching as Research National Conference

Attendees/presenters will have an opportunity to engage with colleagues on a variety of Teaching as Research topics presented as papers, posters and roundtable discussions. Conference panelists will share their experiences and lessons learned while designing TAR projects. Faculty members and graduate students who have conducted research, or wish to do so, are encouraged to submit a proposal to present their findings at the conference. To register to present, please see the Call for Papers/Proposals announcement.
