Being the TEP Graduate Student Teacher-Scholar has been an amazing experience, and I want to encourage anyone who is interested in the position to email me at tep@uoreogn.edu with any questions about what it entails. Specifically the job: 

  • made me into a better teacher. In this position you work with a stellar group of fellow teachers and faculty developers, and you also get deep exposure in the scholarship of teaching and learning. I continued to teach in the summers for the two years I have been with TEP, and was able to approach those classes with confidence and new techniques and tricks I learned from TEP staff and those faculty and GEs I worked with through TEP programming.
  • made me a more marketable candidate for higher education jobs. I am leaving TEP to take a tenure track faculty position, and know from my campus interviews that my work with TEP impressed committees and gave me a fluency to speak about various issues within higher education and teaching that very few graduate students have a chance to develop.
  • was generally flexible allowing me time to do my research, conference, and interview for positions.
  • expanded my sense of how colleges and universities work.
