Teaching Programs for Graduate Students
- Teaching Skills Enhancement Program (TSEP). The School of Graduate Studies, in conjunction with the Instructional Development Office, offers the Teaching Skills Enhancement Program (TSEP), a voluntary, non-credit, but certificated program for graduate students who are interested in teaching in higher education.
Teaching assistants at Memorial may make individual requests to the Instructional Development Office for support in their teaching activities. Consultations may range form a single discussion to a series of on-going meetings.
Through the support of Distance Education and Learning Technologies (DELT), several faculties and schools offer graduate degrees either fully or partially through distance delivery. Learning by distance can be an ideal strategy for graduate students who require flexibility in their scheduling.
Graduate students who wish to develop their teaching dossiers or to apply for graduate student teaching awards are welcome to seek the assistance of the Instructional Development Office.
The Memorial Library system teaches classes in library and internet research and creates tutorials and guides which build information literacy skills. These skills are increasingly important for graduate students for both academic and professional success. Classes can be arranged for graduate students, and for the undergraduates they teach.

The Instructional Development Office offers a variety of workshops and seminars that are directed towards the improvement of university teaching practice. Graduate students, faculty and instructional staff are invited to these sessions.
The Writing Centre can work collaboratively with TAs on an individual or group basis to develop strategies for teaching and evaluating student writing.
