CRLT Fall Seminar Series: Registration Now Open

Registration is now open for CRLT's fall seminar series on teaching and learning. These programs offer U-M instructors opportunities to gain new perspectives on teaching at Michigan, share ideas across disciplines, and improve teaching skills. 

Participants collaborating in a workshop activityThis semester, our offerings include workshops for both faculty and graduate students on key skills like leading discussions and writing exams. To help U-M instructors make a smooth transition to using the Canvas learning management system, we are also offering sessions on teaching with Canvas for both faculty and GSIs. And as always, our seminar series features sessions on topics related to diversity and inclusive teaching. This fall, these include a faculty panel entitled "How Do We Teach About Privilege?"; a four-session seminar for graduate students and postdocs on Diversity and Inclusive Teaching (co-facilitated by CRLT and IGR); and a workshop exploring the intersection of technology and accessibility. Full details about these programs and more can be found on our Upcoming Events list.

3 workshop participants working on an activityMany of these seminars help fulfill a requirement for the U-M Graduate Teacher Certificate and the new GTC+Digital Media, programs developed by CRLT, Rackham, and the Institute for the Humanities to help U-M graduate students document their professional development as college-level instructors. Almost 300 Rackham students have completed the Graduate Teacher Certificate program to date. They report that the program has helped them become more confident teachers and prepared them well for a competitive academic job search.
