All students in the Graduate Certificate in College and University Teaching, whether onsite or online, are required to complete the following 18 credits:
Supervised teaching internship [Prerequisite/Corequisite GRAD 560 and GRAD 561]
Capstone teaching portfolio [Prerequisite GRAD 560 and GRAD 561]
Foundation courses will focus on educational/learning theory and instructional strategies for working with adult learners. The supervised teaching internship will allow students to engage in and reflect upon supervised teaching experiences to practice and refine instructional skills. The capstone teaching portfolio will provide a culminating professional development experience for students and include the development of a teaching portfolio.
Please note that students are expected to find their own teaching experiences for the internship and will not be placed in one by the program.
Specialized course work and experiences, specific selection of which will be determined by students and may include approved discipline-specific teaching-related course(s) and/or approved workshops/symposia offered by OSU’s Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL).
The GCCUT exists as both a site-based (at the OSU campus in Corvallis) and online program (via OSU Ecampus). While aligned in terms of content and coursework, these two programs are separate entities, and students are committed to completing the program's 12 credits of core course work in the version (site-based or online) to which they applied and were admitted. The six credits of elective course work may be completed either on-site or online, regardless of program version.
