University Teaching Certificate

The University Teaching Certificate (UTC program) was developed for masters and doctoral students, as well as postdoctoral fellows, with the goal of developing instructional knowledge and skills. While not all Laurier graduates will enter academia, the career paths they choose to pursue will draw upon the very skills and core competencies UTC seeks to develop.  

Graduate & Professional Student Symposium

Held in September this symposium allows new and returning graduate students to engage in opportunities to develop knowledge and skills transferable to your academic and career development, become part of the Laurier community, and build long-lasting relationships that extend beyond graduation.

Non-Credit teaching Course

Each year, Educational Development offers a non-credit course on university teaching to graduate students. We offer two complimentary courses-one for masters students and one for doctoral students. Each course is intended to facilitate the development of knowledge and skills critical to teaching in higher education settings.
