Graduate Teaching and Learning Program

The Graduate Teaching and Learning (GTL) Program is a multi-tier program designed to help graduate students excel in their roles as teaching assistants and beyond.

We recognize the importance of developing the teaching skills of graduate students, who may serve as the primary points of teaching contact for many undergraduate students. Graduate students benefit from this professional development, which not only helps them get an edge in the academic market, as many academic institutions now look for formal teaching training, but also prepares them for leadership roles outside of academia. 


Please refer to the program overview chart.


The GTL Program is open to all graduate students and postdoctoral fellows while they are active in their programs. 


Levels must be completed in sequence and may be used towards the Professional Development Requirement.  If you began your program prior to August 2018, please visit eClass for your program requirements.


To keep track of sessions, upload assignments and manage your program,  the GTL Program uses eClass. You must opt-in at a GTL week workshop to enrol.
