Workshops

The Graduate Teacher Program offers five workshop series for eight weeks during the semester in 229 and 301 Roser ATLAS.

These workshops are free and open to all graduate students, faculty, and staff. They are designed to help you learn to teach, learn about faculty careers, develop skills in technology, expand your academic worldview, discuss campus diversity, and learn to assess your students' learning and your own teaching.

All GTP workshops count toward requirements for the certificates offered through the program. Make yourself a schedule and plan to attend at least five workshops each semester. You will meet interesting people, become a better teacher, and build your CV!

Departments receive copies of each scheduled workshop series detailing times, speakers, and topics.  Lead Graduate Teachers also post this information on the GTP poster in their home departments and as always, you can access the GTP website for more information.

You may have international undergraduates in your classes, you may be a foreigner in the US, or you may be considering teaching abroad. On the other hand, you may feel that our campus culture could be more welcoming, you may feel like you don’t know how to teach students who are different from you in some way, or as a teacher you may feel that students judge you certain ways because of your own positionality. These workshops provide the opportunity for you to discuss international, domestic, and classroom culture in a safe environment while developing new skills.
