Graduate Student Series

Join Us for CETL Workshops

Graduate students are invited to attend any CETL workshops, which due to COVID-19 take place online, 12-1pm unless noted otherwise. Workshops are recommended for grad students who aspire to be faculty and who are generally interested in teaching and learning in higher education. Please direct any questions to CETL director Dr. Judy Ableser (ableser@oakland.edu). Explore more professional development opportunities.


Graduate TA Workshop Series: Fall 2020

We are pleased to announce a fully online version of our annual Graduate TA workshops, this year as a series of four sessions on Monday evenings (instead of as a 2-day summer intensive). This workshop is designed to introduce graduate students to effective teaching practices in the age of COVID-19 (e.g., fully online & hybrid courses, lab courses, discussion sections, or supplementary instruction). Students who participate in three out of the four primary sessions will receive a certificate of completion from the Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning (CETL). All OU graduate students are welcome to attend. Learn more, and register for the online series.

Facilitate by Dr. Thomas Raffel (raffel@oakland.edu) and Dr. Joanne Lipson Freed (freedraffel@oakland.edu).
