LTFs create teaching workshops and conversations all across campus

Lead Teaching Fellows participate in a series of meetings at the CTL, organize teaching-related events in their home departments, and act as liaisons between their peers and the CTL.

LTFs connect graduate students in their departments to teaching resources and support

Teaching Communities

LTFs are connected to peers who value teaching across disciplines and they cultivate community around pedagogy in their departments.
