Certification in College Teaching

The Center for Teaching and Learning is hosting CCT (Certification in College Teaching) Super Saturday to support those students interested in working on a Certification in College Teaching. This program offers a wide variety of professional development experiences in support of teaching and learning while also guiding TA’s into such topics as: their philosophy of teaching, résumés/CVs, and the creation of engaging learning experiences. The goal of this program is to provide support to our graduate students as they develop effective teaching strategies and to help prepare them for teaching after graduation.

Please complete the Certification in College Teaching Checklist and submit to the chair or department head of your academic program. Each program or college will be encouraged to adjust the Certification process to best meet the needs of the teaching assistants through specialized training or requirements.
