Mac Graduate Teaching Seminar

The Tomlinson Project in University-Level Science Education (T-PULSE) offers a one-day workshop giving participants the opportunity to reflect upon their own approaches towards teaching, to develop skills for engaging students, and to provide a foundation for future academic positions. This workshop is offered at the beginning of the fall and winter terms and is designed for all graduate students, particularly those who are TAing. Invitations to the workshop are communicated to all Mac graduate students by e-mail.

Registration is now open for the next Graduate Teaching Seminar being offered at Macdonald Campus on January 24, 2018.


SKILLSETS is a program that is jointly hosted by Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and Teaching and Learning Services, offering interdisciplinary professional development to all graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Over 200 FREE workshops, information sessions and events are offered throughout the year.
