Masterclass Experience

Want a chance to watch UGA’s leading instructors at work in their classrooms and ask them why they teach as they do? Masterclass Experiences pair master instructors with graduate students for a unique opportunity to observe an undergraduate classroom and converse with the instructor about their teaching strategies and techniques. 

Each semester we feature exceptional faculty instructors from across the University who teach in a variety of classroom settings, from large survey courses to intimate upper-level seminars, and who model strong teaching practices based on experience and experimentation. Know an innovative instructor? Nominate a UGA faculty member to host a Masterclass Experience.

Participation in a Masterclass Experience counts as one credit for the CTL Transcript for Graduate Students.
