We are excited to announce our fall course offerings for the Teaching Certificate Program! The Teaching Certificate Program offers graduate students and teaching fellows a tangible marker of their ongoing development as teachers in higher education. The Certificate is structured to give participants the opportunity to critically reflect upon their performance as teachers and to actively experiment with various modes of communication in lectures, seminars, labs, and across the academic profession.
Our fall 2013 offerings include the following courses:
Working it Out: Lesson Planning and the Use of the Blackboard
Classroom Communication Skills for International TFs
The Physical Voice: Vocal Training for Teachers and Scholars
The Physical Voice 2: Continuing Vocal Training for Teachers and Scholars
Writing a Statement of Teaching Philosophy
Teaching in the American Classroom: Engaging Students in Active Learning
Multimedia Production for Teachers and Scholars
We revamped the program for those graduate students starting the Teaching Certificate Program in the fall of 2013. New requirements and a worksheet designed to help participants track their progress have been posted. Graduate students who enrolled in the Teaching Certificate Program by taking classes prior to the fall of 2013 will be held to the requirements in place when they began the Program. Old requirements can be found here.
