The Value of Teaching
The experience of teaching as a graduate student is a foundational element of doctoral education, and one of the most significant and vital parts of your professional apprenticeship. A variety of resources will help develop your pedagogical skills, among them the multiple programs available through the Center for Teaching and Learning, as well as the various pedagogical initiatives sponsored by your department.
The Innovative Teaching Summer Institute at Columbia University is an intensive, multi-day series of workshops, discussions, and posted reflections all centered on the use of emerging tools to support effective teaching.
Students in Arts & Sciences PhD programs must fulfill a one-year GSAS teaching requirement in their first four years of residence (three years for students admitted with advanced standing) or before receipt of the MPhil degree.
