Certificate Programs

Each semester TAP offers workshops and/or panel discussions covering a wide range of topics to assist TAs with their continued professional development. Sessions are free and open to all graduate students and postdocs. You may attend as many or as few sessions as you wish.

The workshops are broken down into Certificate Programs, each concerned with a particular area. Students who attend at least four sessions in a particular workshop series will receive a certificate of participation. You may earn multiple certificates.

Registration is not required, but is appreciated.
