Teaching Fellow Trainings

Trainings and Resources for Graduate Student Teaching Fellows (TFs)

The Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning hosts a number of training opportunities for Teaching Fellows, including Remote Support Teaching Fellows. These opportunities are scheduled both before and during the term, include sessions geared towards the needs of both new and experienced TFs, and incorporate training from campus partners including Academic Technology for the FAS, the Academic Resource Center (ARC), the Harvard Library, the Harvard Art Museums, and the Language Center.


Fall Teaching Conference and Winter Teaching Week

The Bok Center holds a fall teaching conference and winter teaching week each year for Teaching Fellows at all stages of their professional development.

For additional information about the January 2021 Winter Teaching Week program and to access asynchronous resources, visit the Bok Center’s website.

Pedagogy Fellows Program

The Pedagogy Fellows Program supports Harvard graduate students in their roles as undergraduate teachers. Pedagogy Fellows (PFs) are primarily responsible for developing and teaching their department’s pedagogy course (if applicable) and supporting TF training in their home department or program through class observations, video consultations, and/or office hours.


For additional information, visit the Bok Center’s website or contact Pamela Pollock (pamelapollock@fas.harvard.edu).


Remote Support Teaching Fellow Program


The Bok Center facilitates a community of practice for Remote Support Teaching Fellows (RSTFs), in collaboration with the ARC, Academic Technology, and the Language Center. The community is designed to support RSTFs by fostering discussions of best practices and idea sharing, and to make sure that instructional staff working on enhancing students’ engagement in their courses are aware of the challenges that students have shared in conversations with the ARC.


The ARC is ready with answers to RSTFs’ questions related to remote support and student concerns; please contact Donna Mumme (mumme@fas.harvard.edu) and Emily Walsh (walsh@fas.harvard.edu).
