Teaching as a Graduate Student

Hundreds of graduate students are introduced to learning-centered teaching at UVA through our day-long workshop series, Teaching as a Graduate Student. These practical and interactive sessions address teaching across disciplines and are beneficial for both new and experienced teachers.

Teaching as a Graduate Student is an opportunity to connect with the teaching community at UVA and begin this crucial aspect of graduate student professional development.
