2017-18 Lead Teaching Fellows

Lead Teaching Fellows help keep the CTL informed about graduate students’ needs for programming and support. LTFs also share announcements of CTL programs and activities with their departments.

SLTFs and LTFs document their work and reflections on the LTF program website (Columbia University UNI log-in only). Clicking on an SLTF or LTF below will lead directly to a personal page on that site, which contains contact information as well as details about SLTF projects or LTF-produced events in home departments.
