CEAS PFF program / general university PFF program:

  • Engineering & Applied Science PFF:

  • For CEAS (and science) students exclusively

  • Mentors are typically engineering, applied science & computer science professors

  • Mentoring—15+ hours

  • Earn credit hours on transcript

  • University PFF:

  • General program—all UC grad students

  • Explores a variety of teaching venues

  • Mentoring—40 hours

  • Earn certificate + credit hours

COMBINED PROGRAM: Students can complete the CEAS program and and then earn the university certificate by leading a university PFF seminar (reading group) and completing additional hours of mentored teaching. See Prof. Purdy for details.

  • Participant comments (hiring process):

  • I’m glad I picked up these tips from the PFF program:

    • include my personal teaching philosophy with my application

    • create a teaching portfolio, start early!

    • letters of recommendation are very important

    • research the institution you are applying to, including small details like selectivity of admissions
