Certificate in Foundations of Teaching
The CITL Certificate in Foundations of Teaching is designed for graduate students who have limited or no classroom teaching experience at the University of Illinois. It provides an opportunity to explore teaching and helps prepare these students for responsibilities in an academic setting.
Like all of the certificates, the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching requires you to complete a series of requirements at your own pace. If you need clarification of the requirements, want us to observe your teaching or review your teaching philosophy statement, or if you need any other help, contact CITL. You are encouraged to start working on the certificate as soon as possible in your graduate career. However, there is no time limit for completion of the requirements.
All certificate requirements must be documented using the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching Application in consultation with a faculty member and/or your CITL consultant. The application contains more details for completing the certificate. The completed application must be submitted to CITL for review by your CITL consultant. The submission deadline is April 15.
