Heralded as a hub of undergraduate innovation, the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (VPUE) creates and sustains meaningful interactions between students and faculty both within and outside the classroom. As a collaborative team member of VPUE, you have a unique opportunity to advance and support programs that touch and enhance the lives of every undergraduate student at Stanford. As a team member in a unit that is also affiliated with the Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education (VPGE), your positive impact on graduate students and their teaching and learning will also be substantial.
The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) works to increase the integration of inclusive, evidence-based, and innovative teaching and learning practices in Stanford courses and curricula. CTL has a leading voice on campus for issues related to teaching and learning and contributes to educational strategy, practice, inclusion, diversity, equity, accessibility, and belonging through a wide variety of partnerships and initiatives. CTL staff and affiliates hold the following values central and strive to enact them throughout our work, whether administrative, programmatic, or service-oriented: drawing on evidence to inform our work, practicing equity and inclusion, centering participants and their diverse experiences, stewarding resources responsibly, and learning continuously.
CTL seeks an Assistant Director, Graduate Teaching Programs for a position associated with Stanford’s membership in the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL), which is committed to advancing the teaching of STEM disciplines in higher education, as well as general equity-minded pedagogical support for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. In this role, you will report to the Associate Director, Graduate Teaching Programs in CTL, work closely with the CIRTL advisory board, guide and mentor student staff, and collaborate with campus colleagues in schools, departments, and other units. You will play a crucial role in designing, implementing, administering, and evaluating teaching and learning-focused programming such as Teaching Assistant Orientations, Graduate Course Design Institutes, and local learning communities, and shape the future of pedagogy in higher education.
