About the LTF Program

The Lead Teaching Fellow (LTF) program is an interdisciplinary professional development initiative for Columbia doctoral students. LTFs earn stipends for producing teaching-related events and workshops in their home departments. CTL provides consultation and support, and works with Senior Lead Teaching Fellows to hold a number of LTF cohort meetings.

In 2015-16, 33 LTFs produced a range of events covering topics such as syllabus design, inclusive pedagogy, peer teaching observation, digital resources in the classroom, and framing teaching development for the academic job market. A full list of events, along with LTF reflections on them, are available to Columbia affiliates at http://ltf.wikispaces.columbia.edu.

Schools represented in the 2016-17 cohort include Arts and Sciences, SEAS, GSAPP, SIPA, Public Health, and Nursing. Applications for the following academic year will be accepted in Spring 2017.
