The Impact of Multi-Institutional Stem Reform Networks on Member Institutions: A Case Study of CIRTL
Hill, Lucas B.; Savoy, Julia N.; Austin, Ann E.; Bantawa, Bipana
Innovative Higher Education, v44 n3 p187-202 Jun 2019
Multi-institutional networks have become an increasingly common change mechanism in higher education, especially in undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education reform. However, little is known about the impact of such networks on participating institutions. This study examined one network, the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL), to understand the multi-level impact of network membership on participating campuses. Framed by CIRTL's mission to prepare future STEM faculty, results showed that the Network provided four major benefits for member institutions, which were translated and used to expand and modify local teaching professional development programs, subsequently impacting program participants and campus perceptions of graduate student professional development.
