Teaching Resources


The Graduate School offers several training opportunities at the University of Kentucky:

Departmental Teaching Seminar Sequence:  We highly encourage graduate students to gain teaching experience and want them to get the training they need to be the most effective in the classroom. If graduate students wish to become a primary instructor for a psychology course in our department, they must be take a 1-credit departmental teaching seminar (PSY 780, currently offered in the spring semester). This course is designed as an introduction to various teaching techniques and best practices in psychology. It covers designing a course, campus resources, classroom management, pedagogical tools, and how to present your professional development in teaching. In addition, when a graduate student is a primary instructor, they have a faculty member supervisor for their teaching that does regular check-ins and helps with any classroom issues that may arise during the semester.
