Welcome to the Fall Intensive! The Graduate Teacher Program supports the development of graduate students as teaching scholars. TAs, GPTIs, RAs, graduate students on fellowships, and other graduate students are invited to participate and meet peers, professors, and staff from across campus. The workshops are designed to help you teach at CU-Boulder, to begin your professional development as a professor in postsecondary education, and to explore nonacademic job opportunities. Visit us in E380 CASE or call (303) 492-4902.
