The Chicago Center for Teaching provides a wide range of services to UChicago graduate student instructors, postdocs, and faculty for professional and pedagogical development.


For Faculty and Departments

We provide confidential consultation services by request to all faculty members, lecturers, and instructional professors. We are also happy to work with departments, divisions, and schools to develop pedagogical programming tailored to the needs and aims of the unit. Services offered include classroom observation, interpreting student evaluations, and guidance on issues such as course and syllabus design, inclusive teaching strategies, grant proposals, and teaching portfolios.

For Graduate Students and Postdocs

CCT’s Teaching Consultants facilitate mid-course reviews and individual teaching consultations for grad students and postdocs.

CCT Staff are available for one-on-one consultations on course and syllabus design, statement of teaching philosophy and teaching portfolios, teaching demonstrations, as well as general teaching advice.
