Speech, Language, and Hearing Guide for Graduate Students

This guide helps support graduate students studying Speech, Language & Hearing Sciences.

Center for Innovative Teaching & Learning

The Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (CITL) provides consultations, workshops, and other programs to support teaching at IU Bloomington. CITL is located in Herman B Wells Library, but is continuing to offer services virtually during the fall semester.There are specific opportunities for Associate Instructors (AIs) and many events are open to all levels of teaching. 

Associate Instructor Resources

This link provides an overview of AI specific programs:
  • Annual AI Orientation - The Associate Instructor Orientation, offered each August, is a full day of workshops for new and experienced AIs. The goal of AI Orientation is to equip AIs with the skills, practice, and technologies necessary for stronger pedagogies across all disciplines and classroom formats.
  • Classroom Climate Workshop – The Classroom Climate Workshop, offered each August, is a mandatory event for all new AIs. Participants will learn about Federal laws and IU policies regarding classroom inclusion and equity, as well as equitable teaching practices.
  • Graduate Teaching Apprenticeship Program - This program supplements departmental resources for teaching by providing structured tiers of professional development exclusive to graduate students. Participants create multiple products necessary for the academic market, practice evidence-based teaching, and develop a community of scholars through this self-paced program. 
  • Graduate Student Learning Communities - Apply to join a cohort of graduate students to discuss a specific teaching and learning topic, while creating an inclusive community. The topic of graduate student learning communities may change from semester to semester!
  • Pedagogy Courses for Credit - This page contains a list of courses across IU Bloomington that offer discipline-specific instruction in pedagogy. Graduate students who are no longer in the course-work phase of their degrees may still benefit from the included syllabi from the pedagogy courses. Since this page is updated annually, please return to browse updated pedagogy course offerings!
  • Internal and External Resources - Containing over 60 links, this page will provide graduate students with internal and external sources that address the (1) "nuts and bolts" of teaching and learning, (2) teaching in action, (3) inquiry into teaching and learning, (4) teaching as transferable skills, and (5) peer mentorship and leadership about teaching. 

STEM Events

CITL also hosts events specific to STEM that all instructor levels are welcome to attend. The events webpage allows you to search for programs that might be of interest. Searching "For Graduate Students" will generate events focused solely for graduate students, while searching for "STEM" will populate relevant workshops, programs, etc. for folks at all levels.
Examples of STEM focused events include:
  • STEM Reads - Are you looking for a community to discuss approaches to STEM education? What better way than to dig into good books, articles, and media posts with follow-up discussions about different teaching approaches? Join CITL consultants and Science Librarians for STEM Reads. This group is open to instructors of all levels, including graduate students.
  • Coffee Talks - CITL Coffee Talks are informal conversations among instructors of all levels who are looking to learn from one another. Bring your ideas for engaging and supporting STEM students as they enter another unusual semester at IU.
