The Pedagogy Fellows Program supports Harvard graduate students in their roles as undergraduate teachers. Approximately thirty experienced and creative graduate student teachers per year serve as Pedagogy Fellows, who collaborate with faculty, administration, and the Bok Center’s senior staff to enhance training and support for teaching fellows within their departments and across the FAS.
Pedagogy Fellows (PFs) are primarily responsible for developing and teaching their department’s pedagogy course, and for departments with no course, to work on developing one and/or otherwise supporting TF training in their home department or program. The Bok Center’s training is grounded in principles of equitable and inclusive teaching, and it prepares PFs to serve as liaisons between the Bok Center and their department/program, providing pedagogical support and guidance on topics related to teaching and professional development for graduate students.
