Workshops

The Graduate Teacher Program offers 5 series of workshops each week throughout the semester in 229 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 5 workshops each semester. You will meet interesting people, become a better teacher, and build your CV!

Each department receives copies of the scheduled workshop series which detail times, speakers, and topics. The Lead Graduate Teachers post this information on the GTP poster in their home departments, although you can always access the GTP website for information.

Tiger ImgTIGER 1 Workshops: Mondays @ 4:00-5:00 PM

TIGER workshops highlight issues in teaching and learning in STEM fields.


Tiger ImgTIGER 2 Workshops: Thursdays @ 10:00 - 11:00 AM

TIGER mentoring workshops for research assistants.


FF ImgFriday Forums: Fridays @ 9:00 - 10:00 AM

Academic Professional Development Workshops. These workshops help you understand departmental culture, higher education, and faculty careers. 


IC ImgIntercultural Workshops: Fridays @ 2:00 - 3:00 PM

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.


 

Summer Workshops

Our summer workshops are free and open to all, and cover a variety of topics from publications, course design, and technology use in the classroom.

Summer Workshops

SSCD Img Tuesdays: Summer Series in Course Design @ 3:00-4:30 PM

The Summer Series in Course design workshops are designed to help current and future instructors-of-record and teaching assistants develop a full semester-long college course. Content covered on Tuesday will be illustrated via potential classroom technologies on the following Wednesday in the Summer Technology for College Teachers series.


SSTech ImgWednesdays: Summer Technology for College Teachers @ 3:00-4:30 PM

The Summer Technology for College Teachers workshops will present technologies that will allow you to develop your course. Content will demonstrate how the course design topics covered on Tuesday may be best approached via classroom technology. Please bring your laptop for hands on learning.

TIGER Workshops

Tiger Img Diversity on Campus (DOC): June (exact dates vary)

Diversity on Campus (DOC) training is designed to help CU Boulder graduate teachers (TAs, RAs, and GPTIs) incorporate diversity and inclusion into their classroom environments and be prepared to enter a diverse teaching and workforce environment. Because DOC is supported currently on an NSF grant and subcontract from the Center for the Integration of Research Teaching Learning (CIRTL), the focus of the training will be on teaching in the STEM disciplines. Thus, CU Boulder science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), sociology and anthropology graduate students are invited to participate. Graduate students from other departments may participate, and are welcome, if space allows. Participation is limited to 20 graduate students.

Tiger ImgROAR: 

Research on Academic Retention (ROAR) Learning Community is designed to focus on undergraduate retention in STEM departments. More specifically, this project will focus on statistics courses in STEM departments that are challenging to students and are considered bottlenecks to major completion.

Tiger Img TIGER STRIPE: July (exact dates vary)

STRIPE is a one-week summer institute for postdoctoral fellows in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields in which they  apply engineering principles of design, build, test and iterate to specific course development and utilize access to relevant literature and techniques. The 4-hour per day, 5-day workshop includes educational research techniques, CIRTL topics, and seminal disciplinary education research findings. Participants complete a genuine teaching and learning experience to discuss in their faculty job interviews. All STEM fields are welcome.
