The Tutor is the Graduate Teacher Program Newsletter. However, despite the moniker “newsletter,” it is not “newsy” in the typical way. Rather, it is a publication designed to highlight CU Boulder faculty, to help graduate students teach while they are on the Boulder campus, and to encourage them to think carefully about their career track. Articles are based on Graduate Teacher Program workshops led by local faculty members. The section, “Tooter’s Teaching Tips,” provides a quick introduction to specific approaches. “Words from the Wise” highlights quotes on education and topical issues from a diverse base of educators and writers.
As learning to teach effectively is a developmental process, we suggest that graduate teachers complete the requirements over a minimum of two or more years, although several students have finished all requirements in 12 months.
The Certificate in College Teaching may be awarded to all graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty who complete the requirements and evaluation successfully.
Requirements include classroom teaching, participation in GTP workshops and discipline-specific activities, videotape consultations, faculty observation, and completing a teaching portfolio.
To qualify graduate teachers must complete the requirements detailed below.
Prior to certification, graduate teaching assistants (TAs) and graduate part-time instructors (GPTIs) from other countries have two additional requirements.
