THE500H: Teaching in Higher Education

Application deadline: before 9 am on August 8
See https:/wdw.utoronto.ca/teaching-higher-education for details.

If you’re a senior PhD student or postdoctoral fellow interested in pursuing a teaching career in higher education, consider applying for this comprehensive course! THE500H Teaching in Higher Education is specifically designed for U of T PhD students and Post-Doctoral Fellows (PDFs) interested in teaching careers in higher education.

In THE500H you will improve your teaching practice by becoming more knowledgeable about the ways in which students learn and about different teaching theories and styles. Course participants will experience and take part in a variety of teaching situations, from small group work to more formal lecture sessions. Ample opportunity will be given to participants to reflect on the course as it progresses and on their own teaching and learning experiences.

Who can apply? Senior PhD students and post-doctoral fellows who have already had classroom experience (e.g., as a teaching assistant or as a course instructor). Priority will also be given to students who have participated in TATP workshops through CTSI, as these are considered “recommended preparation” for THE500H.

When does the fall course run?  Wednesdays, 4-6 pm

What does it cost? THE500H is provided free of charge, and upon completion students will receive an official letter from the university confirming their completion of THE500H, with a brief description of its content.
