Graduate Teaching Fellows

The Graduate Teaching Fellows (GTF) are a cohort of graduate students from various disciplines who work with faculty in the Center for Teaching and Learning in support of TA and future faculty programs. As graduate student ambassadors for CTL, they support and extend our reach into their academic units. GTFs facilitate TA Orientation and other workshops on teaching for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. They also conduct classroom observations and individual consultations with TAs and other graduate students/postdoc instructors. In addition, each GTF is developing an individual project that advances graduate student teaching development on campus.
