Teaching Requirement for Ph.D. Students
Ph.D. students are required to teach at least one course in the college of IS&T at the undergraduate level as instructor of record during their Ph.D. studies. The teaching is typically done during the second or third year of studies. The Ph.D. student's instructor evaluations received in the course are reviewed and evaluated by the course mentor and the doctoral program committee. Subsequent teaching assignments will be provided based on the Ph.D. student's performance, needs, interests and availability of courses.
Before teaching a course, a student must have completed the CIST 9050 Colloquium on Teaching and is expected to go through a one-semester mentorship period under the regular instructor of the course. Students must apply to express their intent to complete the teaching degree requirement with sufficient notice to allow department chairs to arrange for the required mentorship period and course scheduling timelines. Typically this means requests should be made 12 months prior to the start of intended teaching term. Once a mutually beneficial match has been reached by the student and the unit chair, all parties must complete the teaching requirement form and submit it to DPC.
While teaching a course as a PhD student, the ongoing mentorship will be provided through the home academic unit for the course.
A list of courses that are usually available for Ph.D. students to teach is given below; however, students are encouraged to meet with department chairs to dicuss their teaching interests to find the best fit. For courses not listed, please meet and discuss opportunities with the appropriate department chair.
