Teaching and Learning Essentials Seminar

In lieu of the usual two-day TA2 training seminar, the CTE will offer a special grad student section of Flex Ed – Adaptive Pedagogy. This self-paced, asynchronous course will provide you the foundation in flexible pedagogy and campus technologies you need to design and deliver face-to-face courses that can adapt to shifting and unpredictable learning formats as the need arises. Students will be enrolled in the course based on the Grad School’s list of TA2s. TA2s are required to pass this course with a 70% or higher as a precondition to accepting their teaching positions. Check your Folio account for the course at that time to gain access.

For those teaching a fully online course, you must also participate in one session of the Getting Started Teaching Online Courses (GSTOC) training detailed below:

Each session includes 3 self-paced modules followed by a requisite Design Practicum (DP). The Self-paced learning modules provide the framework for designing a quality online course. The Design Practicum (DP) is an integral element where each faculty member is assigned an instructional designer who supports the faculty member’s design and development of one online learning module.

All components must be completed to be considered “certified” to teach online courses. Participants may earn the Teaching with Technology (TWT) badge upon submitting an action plan following each module and submitting a capstone reflection. 

Teaching and Learning Essentials Seminar for Grad Students

Completion of the seminar is required for all Teaching Assistants, Level 2 (TA2) PRIOR to starting their teaching assignment.

Participants collaborate on course planning activities throughout the seminar.
