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 Regional Symposium at Cornell University brings together a community of students and faculty who have conducted research projects to inform and improve teaching and learning and those who are interested in finding out more.

Since 2011, Cornell has run a Classroom Research and Teaching Symposium each spring where graduate students, postdocs, and faculty can present the results of their research into effective teaching practices. This is now a day-long symposium that is open to attendance and presentation by individuals at other regional colleges and universities.

Overview of the Teaching as Research Regional Symposium

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 presenters 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 indicating what type of presentation (poster, paper or roundtable) they would prefer.

Who should attend the TAR Regional Symposium?

Graduate students, postdocs, faculty and staff interested in learning more about Teaching as Research and attending research presentations and roundtable discussions on this topic. Those who have their own scholarship on teaching and learning should submit a proposal to present in oral or poster form.
