Microteaching is a quick, efficient, proven, and fun way to help teachers get off to a strong start.
The Center for Engaged Teaching and Learning offers support and services, including workshops, for students from both U.S. and international backgrounds to develop essential skills for teaching in an academic community.
CETL’s English Language Institute (ELI) serves to uphold the state of California's requirement that all teaching assistants for each campus of the University of California prove competence in oral communication. Comprehensive information and resources can be found online.
For select international students during the Graduate Research and Orientation Week (GROW), an ELI Microteaching Language Evaluation will be conducted. If required, you will be contacted regarding an appointment time that will be scheduled during GROW.
