We are excited to recognize and celebrate the 2020-21 Bok Teaching Certificate Recipients.
The Bok Teaching Certificate gives GSAS PhD students a tangible marker of their ongoing commitment to developing as teachers in higher education. Guided by three principles—Learn, Practice, Reflect—those who pursue the Certificate explore different topics in teaching and learning through departmental pedagogy courses and Bok Seminars, reflect on their own teaching practice, and compile a portfolio of written materials documenting their experience. We offer a tailored approach for students; no two students follow the same path through the certificate, and they can make choices based on their own background, discipline, and interests. As we look back over a year that presented unprecedented obstacles and challenges to teachers at every stage of their careers, we are so impressed by our Bok Teaching Certificate recipients’ commitment to excellence in the classroom. We are grateful that graduate student teachers and scholars of all stages see us as a place where they can learn, practice, reflect, and connect with a supportive community.
We wish all Teaching Certificate Recipients the best of luck in their future endeavors!
