The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology is offering a new, summer-long learning opportunity for graduate students who aspire to teach on the university level. Instructional Design for Future Faculty is a blended (mostly online) workshop that encourages the next generation of college teachers to create their “dream course,” from syllabus to final exam.

Participants will develop a teaching portfolio that includes a statement of teaching philosophy, a reflection on teaching, and a teaching development plan—all items vital to a future job hunt, grant application, or teaching award submission. This is a workshop only for those can commit to four to five hours of online work per week.

Participants must apply for one of the 20 available seats by Wednesday, April 22. The course includes a face-to-face orientation day on May 13 and a showcase of participants work on August 4–5. Participants must be enrolled as a graduate student for either the summer or fall 2015. Those who successfully complete the course will receive a stipend in the form of a $200 credit on their student account.
