CIRTL offers several options for sharing CIRTL Cross-Network events with your graduate students and postdocs.
Students may sign up to join our mailing list and receive our newsletters, sent weekly during the academic year and monthly during the summer. Our newsletters announce upcoming CIRTL Network courses, workshops, events and teaching institutes, as well as other professional development opportunities and job openings that might be relevant to grad students and postdocs in the CIRTL Network.
Your local CIRTL community or your students can “Like” our Facebook page or “Follow” our Twitter account to see announcements and reminders about our courses, events, and Network news. Items are posted once or twice a week.
Calendar Subscription / Export
The CIRTL website offers a calendar view of all cross-Network events. “Subscribe to calendar” at the bottom of the page provides a number of options for subscribing or exporting the events to different calendar platforms (Google, iCalendar, Outlook). This is a great option if you have an existing programs calendar where you’d like to integrate CIRTL cross-Network events. You could also create a new calendar in the platform of your choice and subscribe to create a separate place for students to look for these specific opportunities.
The WordPress plug-in CIRTL uses to organize its cross-Network events automatically creates an XML RSS feed. If your local CIRTL community has access to web development expertise on your campus, you may be able to create your own stylized event feed for integration with your website using the RSS feed, available at https://cirtl.net/events/feed/.
RSS Feed w/ Styling Tool
CIRTL will continue to explore other event feed options. If you find a solution that’s different from the above that works well for your local site, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can consider sharing out with other member institutions.
