GTC Call For Applications
Course Type:


The application for the 2023-2024 CRLT Graduate Student Instructional Consultant (GSIC) program is now OPEN. Applications will be accepted until 9:00 am on Monday March 20

The Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) is recruiting Graduate Student Instructional Consultants (GSICs) for Fall 2023-Winter 2024. We are seeking applications from graduate students across campus who have experience being graduate student instructors (GSIs). Graduate students must be enrolled to take on the GSIC position. Successful candidates are those who demonstrate commitment to excellence and innovation in teaching, and who strive to further equity focused teaching environments in which all students and instructors can succeed. 

GSICs further CRLT’s reach by consulting with peers (GSIs) across the U-M community, and in doing so, gain practical experience in the field of educational development. We expect and support our GSICs to work effectively in settings of social and intellectual diversity and have familiarity with equity focused teaching practices. GSICs receive initial and ongoing training by CRLT to fulfill the following responsibilities: 

  • Consult with GSIs to advance strategies for equity focused teaching across the university
  • Consult with GSIs on a variety of teaching related topics (syllabus design, active learning, design of group work and in-class activities, etc.)
  • Consult with GSIs about student feedback they receive
  • Provide feedback to GSIs and graduate students on their teaching philosophy statements
  • Conduct classroom observations and midterm student feedback sessions, and debrief this feedback with GSIs
  • Engage in training and professional development with other GSICs in a collaborative community of practice

The GSIC group will consist of approximately 20-25 graduate student consultants from a variety of disciplines across U-M. GSICs are compensated beginning at $29.00 per hour. The scheduling of hours is fairly flexible based on the availability of the GSICs and the needs of the Center. We estimate 2-5 hours per week during the academic year.

To apply, please fill out the application form here. Before you begin to fill out the form, preview the application (the pdf link is available when you click on the application link).
