PLLC uses a unique instructional model that organizes scholars into small, interdisciplinary forums. Each forum is facilitated by a Teaching Fellow, who is a graduate, law, or professional student.
The PLLC Teaching Fellow program is composed of a teaching assistantship and professional development. The teaching assistantship component of this program will be an average of 12 hours per week (per the GSA agreement) and includes regular TA duties. The professional development averages 9 hours a month for teaching support and monthly professional development.
This Teaching Fellow program provides a unique opportunity to teach undergraduates from faculties across the University of Alberta while receiving training in pedagogy and leadership, including teacher training on facilitating discussion, assessment, and classroom management, as well as leadership skills workshops on topics including public speaking, collaborative negotiation, and imposter phenomenon.
