The Graduate School offers the Graduate Student Workshop Series, which supplements a student's academic training by providing brief, specific skill-building sessions on professional and personal development. UC faculty, alumni, staff and community partners act as topical experts and present on such topics as oral presentation, credit, budgeting and nonacademic career development. UC academic departments and offices also provide workshops of relevance to graduate students. UC workshops are a collegial forum in which students can sharpen skills now while they prepare for their futures.
The Center for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning (CET&L) offers an array of experiential workshops and learning modules tailored to the needs of graduate teaching assistants, faculty and others interested in improving their teaching.
You can download presentations, handouts and other materials from previous workshops by going to the Past Workshops page.

So you’ve been given your Teaching Assistantship and maybe a syllabus for the course or an email from the faculty member teaching the course. Now what?! Up your teaching game and get off to a good start. Join the Graduate Association for Teaching Enhancement (GATE) for a half-day workshop that will provide you with tips and tricks that can be easily implemented from the first day of class onward.
