The Tennessee Teaching and Learning Center’s (TennTLC) mission is to support all instructors in their effort to achieve teaching and learning excellence through creating environments that encourage co-learning, co-creation of value, and reflective practice.
We recognize that as graduate teaching assistants and associates, your concerns and needs regarding teaching are often particular to the new role and situations you are experiencing in the classroom. To that end, the TennTLC has developed four resources that are especially designed to aid you as you become an outstanding instructor:
(1) Consultations with TennTLC staff (arranged by calling our office at 974-3807)- These are confidential consultations with experienced faculty and staff who are invested in helping you become an effective, engaging instructor.
(2) Workshops and Seminars- These are sometimes developed specific to Graduate Teaching Assistants, but are often designed for the entire teaching faculty. They range from seminars and workshops regarding the latest research in effective pedagogy to discipline specific events.
(3) Graduate Student Instructor Webpage- this page and the linked tabs (currently under construction) are designed with your unique needs and talents in mind. Check back often.
(4) Graduate Teaching Certification Program- The first cohort will start in January 2014. The application will be available from this website and the Graduate Student Listserv beginning November 4, 2013. For more information, download the informational flyer here.
Please feel free to visit this page aften as we continue to build and add components to support your efforts.
