Graduate Teaching Certificate

The Graduate Teaching Certificate recognizes the participation of graduate teaching assistants (GA/RA/TAs) in the development programs offered by the Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center. The certificate acknowledges these individuals’ commitment to effective teaching and can enhance their academic credentials.

To qualify for this recognition, a graduate teaching assistant must have attended:

  • the full-day TA Orientation (must attend the entire day)
  • at least five (5) programs of shorter duration offered by Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center (full-day programs, such as attending TA Orientation a second time, can be counted for two (2) of these shorter programs)

Graduate teaching assistants are encouraged to apply for the certificate by completing the online application form or by printing and completing the paper application and mailing it to the Center.

Once the completed application is received and processed, the certificate will be sent to your department to acknowledge your commitment to effective teaching. Your department will present the certificate to you.

If you need a few more workshops to qualify for the certificate, check the current schedule of TA programs on the Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center website.
