Higher Education Teaching Certification Program

The Higher Education Teaching Certification program approaches teaching as scholarly work and it intends to supplement, advance, and extend existing university-wide and departmental graduate teaching assistant (TA) training efforts. It is designed primarily to enhance the teaching effectiveness of TAs while at the University of Delaware and to provide a systematic preparation for all aspects of academic careers. Teaching certification is awarded upon completion of all program aspects and it is included in the participant's official transcript. Participants need to have at least one semester of teaching experience  (i.e., classroom instruction, studio teaching, discussion session facilitation, or laboratory instruction) prior to starting the program, and include in their application a  statement of support from a faculty member in the discipline. Interested graduate students apply for admission directly to the Center for Teaching Effectiveness. There is no tuition charge for the program.
