Graduate student teachers who are interested in teaching strategies, courses, and workshops can find information and resources on this page that have been collected with them in mind. This includes opportunities for graduate students who are interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning as well. 

Teaching Strategies

If you are new to teaching, or if you have already started teaching and you want to know more about effective teaching and learning strategies, the following resource pages can help you:


The GMCTE offers several courses to graduate students at different stages in their teaching carreer:

GSR 979: Introductory Instructional Skills is a new one-term, 10-week course that introduces graduate students with no prior teaching experience, to basic theories and skills for classroom teaching. This course prepares graduate students for their first teaching assignments.

GSR 989: Philosophy and Practice of University Teaching is a two-term course that delves into teaching theory, philosophy, and skills. Applicants must have completed their first year of graduate school, and must have prior teaching experience.

GSR 982: Mentored Teaching is for Ph.D. students who have received a Teacher-Scholar Doctoral Fellowship from the College of Graduate Studies and Research. This faculty-mentored program prepares graduate students to become classroom instructors (term one) with a teaching practicum in their home department (term two)


The GMCTE offers a number of workshops throughout the year in the Fall, Winter and Spring, led by faculty from across campus or by members of the GMCTE team.  We also regularly host visiting lectures from experts across Canada and around the world.  They cover a variety of topics related to teaching strategies, assessment and evalation, and other key and timely aspects of teaching and learning in higher education. Please check our Calendar of Events for more information.
