Teaching fellow program: Peter Lougheed Leadership College with an outline of someone teaching

Being a TF enhances your growth both in and outside the classroom and gives you space to develop your own leadership practice."

- Juanita Gnanapragasam, MPH, Health Promotion

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? If so, consider participating in the Peter Lougheed Leadership College's Teaching Fellow program 

The Teaching Fellow program provides a unique opportunity to teach undergraduates from faculties across the University of Alberta while receiving training in teaching and leadership. Fellows serve as TAs for PLLC courses and receive intensive teacher training on topics including facilitating discussion, assessment, and classroom management; they also participate in a cohort-based leadership development program, meeting monthly during the academic year. Successful candidates receive a $2,500 award and are paid at the Graduate Student Association rate for their Teaching Assistant (TA) contract.

All Teaching Fellow positions for the 2020-21 academic year have been filled. Please consider participating in one of our Graduate Leadership Development programs.
