In the proposed Graduate Teaching and Learning (GTL) Level 3, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows will participate in the Pedagogy and Design Course. They will prepare to take on a primary instructor role and become more adept at handling academic interviews, more capable of tackling roles that require training, mentoring, or leadership in other employment sectors, and more aware and reflective of their teaching practices as they impact the learner.
This level is open to all graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at the University of Alberta. Participants who are in later years of their graduate programs will be given priority for registration in the course, and it is recommended that Level 3 participants be active in or have completed GTL levels 1 and 2. If space is available, tenure track and sessional instructors are also welcome.
The GTL Pedagogy and Design Course, takes place three hours/week for 13 weeks and is offered during the Fall, Winter, and Spring terms. In addition to the class time, participants (postdoctoral fellows and graduate students) are expected to spend approximately one hour/week outside of class completing their course project and providing peer feedback. Successful completion of the course is based on the course project, attendance, and participation.
Participants who successfully complete the course be eligible to apply for the upcoming proposed GTL Level 4.
Next course runs January 12 - April 13 - Register today!
