Grad Students, Come Work at the CFT!

Posted by on Thursday, January 27, 2011 in News.

The Center for Teaching is now accepting applications for its 2011-12 Graduate Teaching Fellow and Teaching Affiliate positions.

  • Graduate Teaching Fellows (GTFs) are employed for the entire academic year, engage in a variety of CFT activities around training and supporting teaching assistants across the university, and are paid $20,000 for the year.
  • Teaching Affiliates prepare and lead sessions at our annual Teaching Assistant Orientation in August, working about 80 hours total (mostly in August), and are paid $1000.

These positions are great opportunities for graduate students to refine their teaching and presentation skills, network with graduate students outside of their department or program, and develop expertise in training and supporting new TAs. Every year, our Teaching Affiliates and GTFs tell us how much they enjoyed and benefited from their experience working at the CFT.

Come to one of our drop-in information sessions Tuesday, February 15th, and Monday, February 21st, from 3 to 4:30 pm, to meet current GTFs and Teaching Affiliates and CFT staff and ask questions about these positions.

Additional information and application instructions can be found here. Applications are due Friday, March 11th.

Comments from graduate students who have worked at the Center for Teaching:

“The opportunity to talk about teaching with peers reinforced my career goals and helped increase my confidence.

The CFT staff was interested in my development as both a teacher and a researcher.”
