My Role with the Eberly Center

From Jan 2015-Dec 2016, I was fortunate to be in a really interesting role of a Graduate Teaching Fellow (GTF) with the Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence and Educational Innovation. In some universities, this role is known as graduate teaching peer consultant. The GTF program has two main goals. First, we support the professional development of the CMU graduate student community in their teaching. Our responsibilities include providing classroom observations, facilitating microteaching workshops, providing feedback on teaching strategies, and facilitating early-course feedback focus groups in classroom. Second, we ourselves gain deeper professional development through consultation training, as well as pedagogical reading and discussions. Our regular GTF meetings are led by Dr. Emily Weiss. More details about the center can be found at the Annual report for 2014-15 and on their website.
