Upcoming Events


CTLgrads Journal Club

Are you interested in the research on teaching and learning and how to apply this research to your teaching practice? Join us for our CTLgrads Journal Club where we will introduce you to the research on teaching various disciplines (also known as Discipline-Based Education Research, or DBER) and engage peer-reviewed articles through our group discussions and contributions to the journal club.

Dates: Thursday, September 26, and every other Thursday through December 5
Time: 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Location: 505b Butler Library

Essentials of Teaching and Learning Workshops

Essentials of Teaching and Learning workshops offer new or developing graduate student instructors approaches to better facilitate student learning and improve teaching practices. Join us at any one of these foundational workshops to deepen insight that you have started to develop at teaching orientations or in early teaching experiences. Attending this workshop and posting reflections satisfies a Foundational Track requirement for participants in the Teaching Development Program (TDP).

Upcoming Essentials Workshops:
September 24: Active Learning
October 1: Grading & Feedback

Time: 10:10 AM – 11:40 AM
Location: 203 Butler Library

Teaching Materials Peer Review Session

Looking for a supportive, informal environment to refine course materials (syllabi, lesson plans) or job market materials (teaching statements, diversity statements, teaching portfolio)? Drop by with a draft, and work with other graduate students to give and receive feedback using a lightly structured peer-review process developed by CTL. 

Date: Friday, September 27 
Time: 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Location: 212 Butler Library

Course Design Seminar


Are you interested in designing a syllabus for a course you plan to teach? Are you approaching the job market and looking to demonstrate how you approach teaching within your discipline by creating a syllabus to submit with your materials? Apply to the Course Design Seminar to explore evidence-based, inclusive instructional design practices and create a learner-centered syllabus of your own design. In this four-week seminar, participants apply the principles of backward design and inclusive teaching to develop context-specific learning objectives, aligned and scaffolded assessments, and a range of engaging activities that facilitate student learning within the context of a single course. Apply by October 4th. 

Date: Thursdays: October 10-October 31
Time: 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Location: 212 Butler Library
