This graduate certificate program is ideal for a variety of students and professionals, especially:

  • Faculty who want to hone their teaching skills or who want to advance in rank or position
  • Current or future graduate teaching assistants (GTAs)
  • Librarians, academic advisors or student affairs professionals who teach in some capacity – whether it is in a classroom or via trainings, orientations or workshops

This program provides that depth-of-knowledge in how to teach and evaluate student work based on best practices in education.
