Graduate Students with Teaching Responsibilities

Resources for Graduate Students with Teaching Responsibilities

There are many shared experiences among all instructors leading a course. Teaching Fellows, PhD students, Teaching Assistants, and Graduate Students with teaching responsibilities face unique challenges in the classroom. For those new to teaching, or early on in teaching careers, navigating assessment strategies, grading rubrics, and general student engagement can be confusing. The resources below have been curated to help navigate this new experience.

Anyone who is teaching a course at Brandeis is welcome to attend the Center for Teaching and Learning workshops and events. Please see our full calendar for details. You're also invited to connect with a CTL Faculty Fellow. These conversations can address a specific question you may have, or just provide general guidance about teaching here at Brandeis.
