Graduate Student Instructional Consultant Program Call For Applications

2018-2019 CRLT GRADUATE STUDENT INSTRUCTIONAL CONSULTANT (GSIC) PROGRAM

APPLICATIONS OPEN JANUARY 22, 2018

This year, we are recruiting graduate student instructional consultants (GSICs) for Fall 2018, with the expectation of continuing through Winter 2019.

GSICs collaborate with CRLT on activities designed to promote excellence in graduate student teaching across the University.  By working with CRLT, you will have a unique opportunity to help advance teaching and learning across the university while continuing your own development as an instructor. During the academic year, GSICs conduct midterm student feedbacks and consultations with other GSIs and meet five times each semester at CRLT to discuss teaching, consulting and careers in instructional development.

A subset of GSICs are also identified as Instructional Technology GSICs (IT-GSICs) due to their interest in using technology to support teaching. These IT-GSICs pursue additional training in the use of instructional technologies, plan and facilitate one or more workshops on using technology for teaching each semester, and occasionally consult with GSIs about using technology in the classroom. The IT-GSICs are part of the GSIC group and receive the same training, participate in monthly meetings at CRLT, and conduct midterm student feedbacks.

All consultants receive training in consulting techniques from CRLT. GSICs are compensated at $20.00 per hour. The scheduling of hours is fairly flexible based on the availability of the GSICs and the needs of the Center.

We seek to create a diverse GSIC group, which will consist of approximately 20 graduate students from across the University.

Beginning January 22, to apply for a GSIC or IT-GSIC position please use the to following link: https://crlt.umich.edu/gsic-application-form-2018

  2. Discuss any GSI or pedagogical training you have attended or facilitated in your own department, campus-wide, or nationally.
  3. Discuss your experience using technology in teaching or supporting others in using technology.

Applications are also asked to upload the following documents:

  1. A C.V. or resume, including a list of courses taught
  2. The following evidence of successful teaching:
    1. Student course evaluations from at least two terms (quantitative and/or qualitative course evaluations; no additional student letters should be solicited)
    2. A reflective statement about those evaluations
    3. At least one letter of recommendation from a faculty member who can speak to your teaching success, preferably a faculty member who has seen you teach
