Certificate in College Teaching
Purpose: The purpose of offering a certificate in College Teaching is to provide graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with the opportunity to develop their pedagogical knowledge and skill in an interdisciplinary manner that facilitates the development of teacher-scholars.
Program Structure: The Certificate in College Teaching will consist of a variety of course work and experiences guided by a student's mentor. Students will select a mentor and develop a plan of study that addresses three major components: discipline specific teaching experience/study, interdisciplinary pedagogy, and instructional/learning theory.
Procedures: Students will apply to the Certificate in College Teaching by submitting a signed Plan of Study form (which serves as the application) to the College Teaching Certificate Committee. Completed plans of study should be submitted to the Graduate School, 102 Roudebush. Upon the completion of the program plan, the student and mentor will submit a statement indicating that the program plan was completed, including a self-assessment by the student and an assessment by the mentor, to the College Teaching Certificate Committee, who determines if the student has completed all program requirements.
Students will NOT receive a State of Ohio certificate in teaching.
GSC 602 and 603 will meet from 7-9 pm on selected Wednesdays.
Applications for beginning the program in Fall of 2014 are due March 4, 2014. More information can be found on the Graduate Directors Blackboard site, the GSA Blackboard site, and the Graduate School website under forms. If students have questions about the GSC classes, they should contact Jennifer Blue.
