The Graduate Certificate in College Instruction (GCCI) is a 9-credit program for individuals interested in deepening their theoretical and practical understanding of college teaching. This certificate program is intended to provide graduate students with a significant credential on their transcripts in the area of instructional understanding and competence. Applications are accepted twice a year: on November 15th for spring entrance and April 1 for fall entrance.
The course sequence is as follows:
- GRAD 6001: Introduction to College Instruction (2 credits) Required
- GRAD 6000: Seminars in College Instruction (1 credit) Required (can be taken simultaneously with GRAD 6001)
- GRAD 6004: Practicum in College Instruction (1 credit) Required only for those without teaching experience (being a TA counts as experience)
- The remaining six credits are electives of the students choosing. See the GCCI courses page for more information.
When you have begun the final course for completing the Graduate Certificate in College Instruction, you are required to complete a Plan of Study.pdf, have it signed by the Program Director, Dr. Robin Grenier, and send it to the Graduate School. The student must apply for graduation from the program through their PeopleSoft accounts before the conferral date.
Our certificate programs aims to deepen students’ theoretical and practical knowledge of college instruction. It is especially relevant for those planning on pursuing academic positions after graduation. We have an upcoming application deadline of April 1, 2019.
Students can see how to apply here.
The program supports short trips of PhD students from the U.S. to Israel and from Israel to the U.S., which will advance their research. The program does not support participation/presentation in a conference or workshop.
Previously failed applicants may possibly resubmit, but only after receiving approval from the BSF office, which will evaluate their chances based on criteria such as progress they have made, improved invitation letter, improved visit plan, etc.
Description of the program and submission forms can be found here. In the most recent round the success rate was 29%.
The deadline for submissions is May 7th, 2020.
