Graduate Student Internships and Research Assistanships

Graduate Research Internship Program (GRIP)

The TennTLC invites graduate students interested in teaching and learning research to apply to the program. Interns become an integral part of the TennTLC through participation in researching workshop topics related to teaching and learning and partaking in the center’s learning community.

Graduate Research Assistantships (GRAs)

Graduate Research Assistants form an integral part of the TennTLC staff. GRAs support faculty development efforts through research into teaching and learning and they also aid with the construction of faculty development workshops and train to help facilitate these workshops. GRAs are involved in all aspects of the center’s mission and their professional development is highly encouraged (see our TennTLC-GRA-policy ).

Assistantships may become available at the end of the spring semester. The TennTLC, in partnership with the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences, provides first consideration to CEHHS doctoral students.
