Teaching Fellows

Are you a graduate, law, or professional student interested in interdisciplinary learning?  Are you eager to collaborate with colleagues from disciplines outside your own?  Are you interested in developing your leadership and teaching skills?  The PLLC invites you to submit an application to be a 2017-18 teaching fellow.

The PLLC teaching fellow program provides an opportunity to teach undergraduates from diverse faculties across the University of Alberta, as well as to participate in a professional development program that includes training in leadership, pedagogy, and the skills needed to be a successful educator.

Teaching fellows will be hired for the 2017-18 academic year, which includes training in August.  Please review the Teaching Fellow Information Package for a description of duties. Applicants are also asked to review the mandatory training dates prior to submitting an application.
