Regular Events & Programs

  • Workshops & TA Cafés: Each semester we offer a series of stand-alone workshops focused on specific teaching-related topics. Our TA Cafés are additional opportunities to meet other graduate and professional students from across campus, and get support for your teaching from more experienced TAs.

  • GradTeach Certificate: The GradTeach Certificate is a non-academic certificate program designed to support the preparation of UGA graduate students to engage effectively in instruction, with an eye on their future careers. By participating in this program you will be exposed to basic foundations in the science and best practices of effective teaching. Along the way you will also create materials that may be useful in your development of a teaching statement and teaching portfolio. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will be presented with a certificate and letter of documentation from the CTL.

  • Spring Teaching Celebration: The Spring Teaching Celebration is a signature CTL event for UGA graduate students. During this annual event, we showcase graduate student teaching accomplishments and innovations, celebrate and recognize award winners, and more. Our goal is to acknowledge and celebrate the invaluable contributions that UGA graduate students make to our campus teaching community.
