For Graduate Students

Teaching and Learning Essentials Seminar

This seminar focuses on developing foundational understanding of strategies and approaches that support student learning at the college level. Completion of the seminar is required for all Teaching Assistants, Level 2 (TA2) PRIOR to starting their teaching assignment. The TLE Seminar is also a pre-requisite for the Foundations in Teaching and Learning: Graduate Certificate.

Learn more about the TLE Seminar and register here.

Graduate Learning Community

Graduate Learning Community (GLC) events are an opportunity for all graduate students interested in teaching to engage with peers, faculty, and university staff to identify, evaluate, and employ concepts and practices that will enhance their teaching and related skills in higher education and other professional settings.

Learn more about the Graduate Learning Community and register for GLC events.


Foundations in Teaching and Learning: Graduate Certificate

The certificate provides a record of your initiative and effort to develop important teaching skills and should not be thought of as an evaluation of your teaching. Graduate students who complete the certificate program will be better able to teach in a broad range of settings, making them more attractive candidates for colleges and universities who are recruiting skillful teachers and for other employers who value the transferable skills associated with effective teaching.

Additional Services

We are available to consult with all graduate students interested in teaching, regardless of whether they are teaching or not. Consultants can provide feedback on syllabi, course calendars, lesson plans, teaching portfolios, teaching philosophy statements, and any other teaching-related materials. Learn more about consultation options.

We encourage TA2s to take advantage of teaching observations and midterm student feedback as well.

Contact Dr. Lauren Barbeau– or 478-0078–to schedule a consultation, observation, or midterm student feedback session or to discuss our offerings for graduate students.
