CFT Offers Summer Intensive Grad and Postdoc Programs
The Center for Teaching is happy to announce that we are offering two Summer Intensive programs this May for Vanderbilt graduate students and postdocs. The first Summer Intensive program is for the Certificate in Humanities Teaching & Learning (CHTL) and is open to humanities graduate students and postdocs. Similar to our academic year-long version of the CHTL, this Summer Intensive program is comprised of a condensed sequential seminar and practicum. Participants will explore and develop teaching skills that promote learning within a diverse student body across a variety of settings—with an emphasis on the particularities of teaching historically underrepresented populations, including first-generation college students and students of color, and a specific humanities discipline as part of a liberal arts curriculum on small private and/or historically black campuses.
For the first time, we are also offering a Summer Intensive program for the Certificate in College Teaching (CiCT). The Summer Intensive program is comprised of a condensed sequential seminar and practicum that explores foundational topics in teaching and learning and inclusive teaching, and is open to all Vanderbilt graduate students and postdocs. This may be especially attractive for those graduate students and postdocs who cannot attend the weekly Fall and Spring sessions of the regular CiCT program, which maintains a waitlist.
For more information about either program and to register, please see our Summer Intensive Programs webpage.
