Certification in College Teaching Requirements

All graduate students and postdocs successfully completing the Certification in College Teaching (CCT) will demonstrate achievement in five teaching competencies.

The CCT is a university-wide certification but a college-based program. Contact your college coordinator to learn more about your college's requirements beyond the university-wide requirements.

All electronic portfolios must contain the following:

  • Evidence of your development on each of the five teaching competencies. 
    • For the first four competencies, you need to:
      • describe the competency (in your own words), 
      • provide an artifact & artifact rationale, and 
      • interpret/reflect on your learning. (If you attended a CCT Institute, you should have completed these reflections.)

*Use this Portfolio Tip Sheet for Graduate Students or this Portfolio Tip Sheet for Postdocs to assist in the development of your ePortfolio.
