Applications open for Spring 2024 CTL Graduate Fellows

We seek two CTL graduate fellows to join our team, working together to further CTL programs and services at WashU.


The Center for Teaching and Learning advances WashU’s mission of educational excellence by supporting a diverse community of teachers and learners. The center promotes inclusive, evidence-based pedagogy, develops teaching-focused collaborations among campus partners, and strives to create a transformational educational experience inside and outside the classroom. 

To this end, the CTL is seeking two graduate fellows who will extend our current work and develop new programs and services that facilitate teaching and learning at WashU. Opportunities for fellows include supporting graduate student programming, data analytics projects, co-facilitating CTL workshops/virtual conversations, community building initiatives, developing just-in-time teaching resources, designing a new classroom observation protocol, and publishing scholarship of teaching and learning. Importantly, the CTL facilitators will work with fellows to provide them with projects that align with their professional goals and help them gain experience in the field of educational development. The fellows will work closely with CTL staff members who will serve as mentors on particular projects, including planning and scheduling sessions as well as creating materials for Fall 2024 Mentored Teaching Experience (MTE) Orientation. 

We seek to hire a diverse team to complement our existing fellows. All graduate fellows will collaborate on projects as a team. Most projects will be discussed and chosen by one or more fellows with guidance from the CTL mentors. Hence, graduate fellows will be selected not only on their own expertise but also based on how they complement the expertise and experiences of other fellows.
