Doctoral Candidate Elaine Lafay is a CTL Graduate Fellow for 2017-18.

CTL’s Graduate Fellowship for Teaching Excellence program honors graduate students who are dedicated to excellent teaching and is designed to foster conversations about teaching to help graduate students develop as teachers.

Graduate Fellows organize and facilitate teaching workshops in their departments and across the university, observe graduate students teaching and offer feedback, and meet regularly as a fellows group to discuss teaching practices.  Elaine has already helped plan an opening faculty workshop about dealing with race and racism in our classrooms.
