Prepare for a future teaching career

Registration for the spring sections of Advanced Professional Development for University Teaching (UNIV401) is now open. The semester-long course meets every Tuesday from 1 to 2:15 p.m.

The objective of the course—aimed predominantly at graduate students and postdocs—is to prepare participants to teach effectively in university classrooms. These future faculty members will engage in seminar-style classes featuring discussions and activities around lesson planning, developing inclusive syllabi, active learning, and assessing student learning, amongst other topics. Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the semester, and will have transcript evidence acknowledging successful completion of this professional development course.

The course text, How Learning Works, will be provided to participants free-of-charge.For more information, email
