Accepting Applications for the Teaching Certificate Program
The CFT Teaching Certificate Program is a self-guided program designed so that Vanderbilt graduate students, professional students, and post-doctoral fellows have an opportunity to develop and refine their teaching skills through three cycles of teaching activities, each consisting of inquiry, experimentation, and reflection phases.
In the first cycle – which is accepting applications now – participants focus on one or more teaching practices to develop and refine. By preparing a teaching statement, participating in CFT workshops, undergoing a classroom observation sequence and then reflecting on their experiences, participants build a strong foundation of understanding and practice in basic teaching practices – which is advantageous in today’s increasingly competitive academic job market.
Applications for Cycle One are being accepted until February 16, 2011.
