Earn a Graduate Certificate in College and University Teaching from the ILC!

This certificate includes two courses: 

  • Fundamentals in Teaching (FIT1): Science of Learning
  • Fundamentals in Teaching (FIT2): Course Design and Assessment

After successfully completing this two-part graduate course series, you will receive a digital badge and certificate from the Innovation in Learning Center.

We’ll explore teaching questions, such as: 

  • How do we learn? How do we know that we learned something?
  • What are learner-centered instructional practices? How do I engage everyone to include all voices?
  • What is the role of motivation in the college classroom?
  • What is the difference between formative and summative assessments?
  • What is my teaching philosophy? 

You can expect:

  • To practice teaching in a low-stakes environment
  • To build your teaching toolkit with learner-centered and equitable teaching practices
  • To work on your own and participate in in-person group discussions
  • To be inspired to create well-designed lessons and courses (and sign up for FIT2!)
  • To craft a research-informed teaching philosophy statement
