As a new graduate consultant (GC), working with the Graduate Associate Teaching Award (GATA) nominees was one of the most memorable and enjoyable parts of my first year at UCAT. Please join me and the rest of UCAT in congratulating this year’s GATA winners.

Teaching in the Wake of Tragedy
With recent public safety threats to our campus, and the tragic events that occurred in Boston, we wanted to share some resources available to help in deciding whether and how to deal with such events in class.
Course Design Institutes
UCAT’s Course Design Institute (CDI) is an intensive five-part workshop in which instructors, with hands-on guidance from UCAT staff, focus on designing or redesigning a specific course. The CDI provides participants with the tools, time, and support they need as they work to build or rebuild effective, student-centered courses.
“What holds the class together, making it more than a random walk, is the idea of distinct sites, and the practices that create a sense of place: out of doors is not just an open horizon, but specific places that hold meaning.”
