Tech to Teaching Capstone Application

The capstone experience to the Tech to Teaching certificate program is only available to program participants who have successfully completed the foundations level of the Tech to Teaching program. The capstone requires students to have arranged a mentored teaching experience, which might include co-teaching a course, developing a workshop series in your department, or serving as instructor of record and delivering your own course.

What is the difference between the capstone options? Select CETL 8719 Teaching Immersion if you will serve as instructor of record for a course. Choose CETL 8715 Teaching Practicum if you have arranged a mentored teaching experience in which you are teaching at least 15% of the course material or you have developed a mentored teaching experience in a non-credit setting, such as a workshop series. You may elect the non-credit option if you do not want to earn academic credit. The teaching arrangements must be made prior to registering for the capstone. Contact the Tech to Teaching program faculty if you need assistance arranging a teaching opportunity.

IMPORTANT: To register for CETL 8715 or CETL 8719, you must submit both this questionnaire AND the CTL graduate courses permit request.

In addition to teaching or co-teaching, all capstone participants must be part of a cohort that meets regularly throughout the experience. These sessions are used for peer feedback and additional exploration of teaching and learning topics of interest. The cohort requirement can be fulfilled through participation in the CTL capstone cohort or through a department-sponsored cohort. Departments with cohorts may include: Psychology, ECE, ME, BME, AE. Participants in departmental cohorts will still receive feedback on teaching from CTL faculty.
