Have you ever wondered how CRLT is able to offer individual consultations for anyone teaching at U-M, including hundreds of GSIs? We couldn't do it without our team of Graduate Student Instructional Consultants (GSICs). The GSICs are U-M graduate students, current and former GSIs representing a broad range of fields, who consult with GSIs across campus on teaching and learning. They also often facilitate workshops and contribute to our new GSI training programs.
As the coordinator of the current GSIC group and a former GSIC myself, I know that the program has inspired many GSICs to pursue a career in educational development. As a result of my involvement in the group during my tenure as a graduate student at U-M, I discovered my passion for working with diverse instructors to enhance their teaching and improve student learning. I ultimately pursued a career as an instructional consultant, and many former GSICs have done the same.
