Welcome to the Graduate Teaching Academy Home Page
The Graduate Teaching Academy (GTA) is a graduate student-led organization supported by the Office of Graduate Studies and the Center for Teaching Excellence. Our mission is to provide professional development opportunities to equip graduate students in the area of college teaching.
All GTA seminars and workshops are FREE for graduate students enrolled at Texas A&M University. Postdocs, faculty members, and visiting researchers are also welcome to attend GTA events.
Participate in any or all of the GTA programs as your schedule permits. For example, you may choose to attend one or any number of our Fall & Spring Seminar Series presentations. Or, you may choose to enroll in our GTA Fellows program that can be entered into at the beginning of either the fall or the spring semester. Those who successfully complete the one-year program obtain a Certificate of Completion from the GTA and receive the designation of “Graduate Teaching Academy Fellow.” GTA Fellows are eligible to enroll in the GTA II Learning Communities program, become a GTA Steering Committee (GTASC) member, go on to become a GTA Senior Fellow, and apply for travel awards to the Wakonse South Conference held annually in Burnet, TX and/or national Wakonse Conference in College Teaching held annually in Stoney Lake, Michigan.
