The Office of Graduate Studies is here to help faculty and graduate students succeed in their programs of study, research and creative endeavors. We also look forward to helping graduate students develop novel partnerships among ourselves as well as with the community and the private sector. Throughout the year, our office sponsors workshops on career preparation, teaching and grant writing for both students and faculty.

The Office of Graduate Studies, in collaboration with teaching experts at the College of Applied Sciences and Technology (CAST) is offering a series of two workshops introducing graduate students to basic teaching skills.  The workshops are open to all graduate students at RIT and are an experimental pilot exercise aimed at designing a training process that will thoroughly prepare graduate students to be effective teachers.  The workshops are designed to be independent from specific course content, and focus on pedagogy, instructional design and related topics. 

Because of overwhelming demand we have upped the registration cap to 55 students.  We do have a few seats left for those who would like to participate.  We will also have a waiting list once we meet the 55 cap.

Because we anticipate that these workshops will be oversubscribed, we ask that if you need to cancel, let us know as soon as possible.

These courses are supported by the Office of the Provost.
