Teacher Development


Teacher Development Program for Graduate Students

The Teacher Development Series is a free, six-part series designed specifically for graduate students to develop teaching and classroom skills.   The Series are held each Fall and Spring semester.                    

The Grad Life Office and the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning are again partnering to offer a series of workshops in our Teacher Development Program for Graduate Students. These free, non-credit workshops are open to all Lehigh graduate students. Students who attend five of the six sessions over the semester will receive a Level I Certificate of Participation and letters of commendation to their department chair and adviser. Once a level I certificate is earned and you have successfully completed 1 Fall and 1 Spring T.D. series, a Level II Certificate of Participation is earned. Noting your additional efforts, a Certificate of Participation, Level II is earned and a second letter is sent to your department chair and adviser.
