Schreyer Institute of Teaching Excellence (SITE)

The Schreyer Institute of Teaching Excellence is Penn State's resource for graduate students involved or interested in the practice of teaching. We offer a variety of workshops on topics grad students find helpful, such as

  • Grad Instructor 101: Planning your course without losing your mind
  • Grad Instructor 102: Beyond the basics of course design
  • TA 101: A guide to the teaching assistantship
  • Documenting your Teaching: A teaching portfolio workshop
  • Best Practices for Power Point: Tips for teachers
Students can register for these workshops at our website.  We can tailor the workshops for the specific needs of your department as well, and bring them to you at your convenience.  We also offer one-on-one consultations on any question regarding teaching.  A very popular consultation for graduate students on the job market is writing and revising a teaching philosophy statement.
