The concept of the complete scholar serves to provide direction for the ELTI Research Collaborative. In order to facilitate the development of theory on college
teaching and theory-based practice, the Research Collaborative supports faculty who want to work with colleagues from across campus to conduct and publish college teaching research. The Research Collaborative is committed to promoting interdisciplinary inquiry, and to the employment of diverse methodologies.

CIRP - Classroom Instructional Research Program
Classroom Instructional Research Program is designed to promote critical inquiry into teaching and learning. Participants
will develop an evidenced-based classroom research project related to their teaching either by
creating or modifying a course, or addressing an instructional or assessment problem. Participants attend
four faculty workshops, monthly peer group meetings and share their projects at a dinner workshop.
CIRP involves a two semester commitment. Interested faculty should submit a tentative project proposal as part of the application process.
