CTL is proud to offer courses for graduate students who are interested in university teaching. All CTL courses are approved courses for the Interdisciplinary Certificate in University Teaching.
GradTeach events are open to all graduate students and post-doctoral scholars. The GradTeach Workshop Series focuses on topics of particular interest to the developing teacher. Topics may include, but are not limited to, effective teaching presentation, facilitating discussion, lesson planning, and intercultural communication. Registration is strongly encouraged given that space for workshops is limited to 20.
This annual symposium is a full day event for all graduate students and postdoctoral scholars and provides information related to UGA teaching policies and helpful techniques to improve teaching, including keynotes from award-winning faculty and peer-led workshops and panels on practical skills and resources.
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.
TA Cafés are opportunities to meet other graduate and professional students from across campus and get support for your teaching in a casual environment. Each TA Café features a teaching resource or technique and food is always provided. These events are hosted monthly by departments across campus and are free and open to all graduate students.
Have your participation in CTL events and services tracked and recognized! This program provides you with both documentation of your teaching development experiences at the CTL and the opportunity to reflect on those experiences.
