Individualized Program Guidelines for Associate-Level Certification

The individualized program is for those who wish to tailor the original certificate program to a specific field of study or interest. Individual programs must integrate the three CIRTL core ideas: teaching-as-research, learning communities and learning-through-diversity, and must meet the minimum hours of activity required.

For more information about the individualized program attend a CIRTL@UB Learning Community meeting.
