Lead Teaching Fellowship: Applications Open!

The Lead Teaching Fellowship is a professional development opportunity for doctoral students who are committed to promoting pedagogical practices and conversations among their peers. LTFs must be in years 2-7 of a doctoral program at Columbia University as of Fall 2021. Applications for 2021-22 Lead Teaching Fellows are being accepted now through April 19, 2021.

As a Lead Teaching Fellow, you will:

  • Design workshops that respond to teaching-related needs and interests in your department.
  • Connect to resources, programs, and support at the CTL that can help you shape these workshops.
  • Cultivate peer connections within an interdisciplinary cohort of Columbia graduate students committed to advancing teaching practices.

LTFs receive stipends of $2000 ($1000 at the end of each semester) upon the successful production of teaching-related events in their home departments, and the completion of a series of activities promoting communication between the CTL, other Fellows, and faculty and graduate student instructors in their home departments. 

Teaching Statement Online: Last Call for Applications!

The CTL is pleased to offer a unique, online opportunity for current Columbia doctoral students to learn about, write, and revise a teaching statement in order to enter the academic job market successfully.

The Teaching Statement Online intensive (TSO) is designed to let you work from home or wherever you do your best writing. Working 2-3 hours per week, this four-week program will move participants step-by-step through the writing process. Participants who complete the program will leave with a completed draft of their teaching statement and receive multiple rounds of feedback from CTL Teaching Consultants and peers.

The Teaching Statement Online workshop will next run from April 5 – May 3, 2021. Applications will close by the end of day today, March 29.
