In the spring of 2015, the McMaster Institute for Innovation and Excellence in Teaching and Learning (MIIETL), in partnership with the School of Graduate Studies (SGS), launched the new Teaching and Learning Certificate Program for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at McMaster University. This session will provide an overview of how the program was originally envisioned and how it was later implemented. It will also describe the process used to evaluate: (1) students' perceptions of the program, and (2) students' achievement of the program's intended learning outcomes. As a number of evaluation-related challenges have arisen, attendees will be lead in small group discussions in order to brainstorm possible strategies for improving the program's evaluation process. The hope is that this process will help to ensure that the program is of high quality and that it continues to work towards building a strong inter- and trans-disciplinary teaching and learning community among McMaster graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
