Teaching Opportunities for Postdoctoral Fellows

Postdoctoral fellows (PDFs) have opportunities to teach within their department or related units, including arranging guest lectures with faculty members. Teaching workshops, online resources and conferences are available to gain pedagogical training.

According to the Postdoctoral Fellows Policy, PDFs can undertake teaching responsibilities, with prior agreement from supervising faculty, of up to one full course per term.

Graduate Teaching and Learning Program

PDFs are encouraged to participate in the Graduate Teaching and Learning program (GTL). Though transcript notation isn't available, PDFs can receive a completion letter for each level achieved. 

If you've completed similar training before your fellowship, contact Dr. Jay Friesen (jayf@ualberta.ca) or Dr. Rob Desjardins (robertd1@ualberta.ca) to discuss entry at an appropriate level.
