Teaching Courses

Many Stanford departments offer teaching and pedagogy courses that are open to all graduate students. If in doubt, seek permission from the instructor.

We have identified and tagged courses that, based on their description in Explore Courses, appear to align with our Graduate Professional Development Framework or with our Preparing for Faculty Careers or Interdisciplinary Learning portfolios. We have not taken these courses, so please let us know if you think a course is not appropriate or if you identify a course we should include.

Use the filters on the left to refine your search or to view other course feeds. Click on any course to view the details in Explore Courses.

Please note that courses may have prerequisites or limited enrollment or may require permission from the instructor. You should contact the instructor if you have specific questions; the VPGE office does not have any influence over the courses offered by departments.
