General Pedagogy Training


The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning offers general pedagogical training to graduate students who cannot receive pedagogical training through their departments, either because they are not eligible for an assistantship or because no training is offered.  This training discusses pedagogy in general rather than specific, disciplinary topics, and is designed for students who look to receive an assistantship in their department and distinguish themselves from other applicants.
