We offer a number of cohort-based learning programs and intensives for both faculty and graduate students.
Foundations of Course Design
Are you designing a new course or redesigning an existing course? During the Foundations of Course Design (FoCD) Intensive, we work through the course design process and focus on 1) articulating your course vision and purpose, 2) developing course learning outcomes, 3) planning your summative assessments, and 4) outlining experiences to support student learning. FCD prioritizes hands-on application and provides opportunities to receive feedback from peers and Trefny colleagues.

Graduate & Postdoctoral programs
College Teaching Certificate Program
Are you a graduate student or postdoc who is interested in teaching and learning? The College Teaching Certificate Program (CTC) is a yearlong, application-based learning cohort that is open to any and all graduate students and postdocs who are interested in developing their teaching practice within the contexts of higher education. Participants will leave the program with hands-on teaching experience and a diverse portfolio that includes a teaching statement, statement of diversity, a sample lesson plan, and an original course syllabus. With an emphasis on peer learning and review, the CTC program is specifically designed to foster community and mentorship among graduate students and to provide participants with well-rounded professional development for a future teaching career in higher education.
