CEILS offers a number of training and practical opportunities to learn how to employ modern college teaching methods. Many of these are through UCLA’s membership in a national organization termed the CIRTL network, which teaches you how to teach and offers certificates of completion that can be listed on your CV when you apply for jobs. If you plan on an academic career, please consider taking the CIRTL online courses and participating in UCLA’s onsite CIRTL meetings. Please visit https://ceils.ucla.edu/
