Graduate Program

Graduate students can get involved as Teaching Fellows!

Are you a graduate, law, or professional student interested in interdisciplinary teaching and learning? Are you keen to collaborate with colleagues from disciplines outside your own? Are you interested in building your capacity as an educator via innovative experiential learning activities and leadership development? The Peter Lougheed Leadership College (PLLC) invites you to submit an application to be a Teaching Fellow for the 2019-2020 academic year.

This Teaching Fellow program provides a unique opportunity to teach undergraduates from faculties across the University of Alberta while receiving training in teaching and leadership, including teacher training on facilitating discussion, assessment, and classroom management, as well as leadership development on topics including public speaking, collaborative negotiation, adaptive leadership, and media training.

Teaching Fellows will be hired for the 2019-2020 academic year and also must be available for teacher training July 29-August 10 (weekdays only). Should you be unavailable for an August date due to a conference/pre-planned travel, you can note it on the application.

Please review the Teaching Fellow Duties document for more information.

Teaching Fellow Program Information Sessions

Dr. Cristina Stasia, PLLC Director of Instruction, and current PLLC Teaching Fellows will deliver these sessions. The sessions include information on the dual components of the program including: overview of the four PLLC courses, overview of the Leadership Development program, and significant time for Q&A.

  • Wednesday, Jan. 30, 10-11 am, ED 164
  • Thursday, Feb. 7, 5-6 pm, ECHA 1 125
  • Tuesday, Feb. 12, 3-4 pm, ESB 2 36
  • Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2-3 pm, City Room, Peter Lougheed Hall
  • Tuesday, Feb. 26, 12-1 pm, LC 193

Sign up for an info session on Google Forms. More dates will be announced as they are confirmed. 

Office Hours
