For many students, teaching offers a new and exciting skillset to develop during graduate school. Being a teaching assistant (TA) may be a one-time requirement for completing your degree or a continual means of financial support throughout your graduate education, but many graduate students will be a TA at least once during the course of their degree program.

The Graduate College partners with the Center for Teaching which supports teaching and learning excellence across campus. 

To request a teaching-related workshop for your department or group from the Center for Teaching, contact Morgan Iommi at morgan-iommi@uiowa.edu.


Example topics for workshops include:

  • Facilitating discussions
  • Motivating students
  • Assessing student learning
  • Challenging conversations in the classroom
  • Using instructional technology (such as ICON, MAUI, Clickers, etc)
  • Maximizing TA positions as professional development
  • Creating and refining teaching philosophies
  • Other custom topics upon request
