Preparing Future Faculty Workshops

Whether you are developing your teaching skills or starting your academic job search, as graduate students and postdocs you will find a variety of workshops aimed at helping you prepare for teaching in higher education. 

Teaching Workshops for Future Faculty and TA Development

The teaching workshop series presents a variety of pedagogical theory and hands-on practice to support your teaching development. These workshops are aimed at graduate students and postdoctoral scholars who are teaching assistants and/or preparing for careers as faculty in higher education. While this workshop series contributes to the foundation-level learning outcomes for the Teach to Teaching certificate and the associate level CIRTL certificate, all are welcome regardless of membership in these certificate programs.
