About the GTA Academy
The Graduate Teaching Assistant Academy, established at UofL during 2008-2009, is a year-long series of sessions designed to support knowledge, skills, and excellence in college teaching. Each cohort of students participates in interactive workshops along with faculty mentors selected for their expertise in teaching. Content includes conceptual frameworks for understanding today's students, practical teaching strategies, and the scholarship of teaching and learning. As a part of the GTA Academy, graduate students participate in a micro-teaching session to both observe and gain feedback from peers on their teaching and complete a teaching philosophy statement -- both of which are valuable in the job search process. The GTA Academy is a collaborative program between the School of Interdisciplinary Studies and the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning.
Applying for the GTA Academy
All graduate students are encouraged to apply, though graduate students who currently have, have had, or will have a teaching assistantship will receive priority. In addition to completing the application form, students are required to have their graduate program director or chair send an e-mail to the Dean of the School of Interdisciplinary and Graduate Studies, Dr. Beth Boehm (firstname.lastname@example.org), indicating approval of the student’s participation in the academy.
