Summer Graduate Teaching Scholars Program


The Summer Graduate Teaching Scholars (SGTS) program provides excellent opportunities for advanced graduate students to obtain mentored teaching experience while serving as instructor of record for a UC San Diego undergraduate course during summer session. Each General Campus department or program is invited to nominate advanced graduate students to teach in summer session as participants in this professional development program. 

For information on Eligibility, Nominations, and Program Requirements, see here: https://academicaffairs.ucsd.edu/ug-ed/sgts/index.html

The Teaching + Learning Commons supports the SGTS instructors throughout their experience, including

  • strengthening their background in teaching development prior to SGTS (Introduction to College Teaching)
  • providing instruction and directed work time to create a student-centered course and syllabus (Course Design Studio for New Instructors of Record)
  • mentorship, classroom observations, and a learning community of fellow instructors prior to and during the teaching experience
  • opportunity to present at a Teaching Reflection Roundtable following the teaching experience
