The Graduate Teacher Certificate is designed to encourage teaching assistants (TAs) to develop their teaching skills and reflective practice. It provides opportunities to document teaching experience, professional development, and the constructive use of student feedback.
Like all of the certificates, the Graduate Teacher Certificate requires you to complete a series of requirements at your own pace. If you need clarification of the requirements, want us observe your teaching or review your student feedback, or if you have any other questions, 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 Graduate Teacher Certificate 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.
