The Graduate Teacher Program offers four workshop series during the academic year and at least one series during the summer to help you learn learn about teaching, faculty careers, and technology. Workshops also expand your academic worldview, provide venues for discussion of timely topics like campus diversity and inclusive excellence. These workshops are free and open to all graduate students, faculty, and staff. All GTP workshops count toward requirements for the certificates offered through the program. You will meet interesting people, become a better teacher, and build your CV!
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.
