Many graduate students enter into PhD programs with the intent of securing faculty positions in higher education after graduation. In collaboration with the Division of Teaching Excellence and Innovation, the Humanities Center offers a pedagogical humanities certificate series every fall. The PHC is a teacher-training initiative designed to give graduate students in the School of Humanities the opportunity to join an interdisciplinary community dedicated to reviewing evidenced-based pedagogical research and discussing how to implement these strategies into daily teaching practices. The workshop series, led by a DTEI Pedagogical Fellow, focuses on a diverse range of topics including inclusive teaching practices, mentorship, assessment approaches, educational technology, and more. Participants will also have the opportunity to give and receive peer feedback on their teaching. Registration for the series opens at the beginning of fall quarter.
