CTL for Graduate Students
The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) supports the professional development of Columbia graduate students across the University with current or future teaching responsibilities. The CTL also offers an array of support to graduate students to help them reflect on, improve, and measure their teaching at Columbia.
Graduate students participating in the CTL’s programs and services develop a sense of pedagogical agency, interdisciplinary exchange, and peer-driven inquiry that helps prepare them for the future in a variety of academic and professional settings. They also develop instructional practices that are learner-centered and inclusive.

“The professional development of our students is of paramount importance to the Graduate School. The CTL has developed pioneering workshops, institutes, and certificate programs that offer them innovative opportunities to communicate and collaborate with each other, to improve their presentation skills, and to prepare themselves to become leaders in their future professional contexts.”
