Center for Teaching Excellence

CTE provides resources for graduate students who wish to build academic careers in which teaching will play a significant role. The certificate in college education program is offered to graduate students by the CTE at Rice.

Students develop their teaching philosophy statement, write a sample syllabus, learn various evidence-based teaching strategies, design in-class activities, design assessments, and practice teaching through the program.

Once completed, the Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning (GCTL) will appear on students’ transcripts, which can provide a valuable credential to add to their CVs.
