Pedagogical Liaisons Program

Graduate students and post-doctoral scholars who successfully complete University Studies 390X (or University Studies 390A Seminar B) or obtain a Certificate in Teaching Excellence are invited to apply to be a Pedagogical Liaison. Graduate students who complete the program will be automatically fast-tracked to the interview stage of the Pedagogical Fellowship application, should they choose to apply. They must complete the PF application prior to the submission deadline, but they will be invited for an interview, which is the last stage of the decision process.

Selected candidates are responsible for providing 10 hours of pedagogical service to their department or school. To satisfy the 10 hour minimum, candidates may: facilitate pedagogy workshop(s) for their department or school; may assist their Pedagogical Fellow mentor with the design and facilitation of the two-day TA Professional Development Program offered at the beginning of the Fall Quarter; serve on a teaching committee; design a course; and/or conduct peer observations & teaching consultations. Applications are accepted year-round: Pedagogical Liaisons Application

Once the 10 hours of service are complete, participants are required to submit a Reflection Paper.
