Kaufman Teaching Certificate Program (KTCP)
The Kaufman Teaching Certificate Program (KTCP) was re-named in September 2014 to honor a long-time friend of the Teaching and Learning Lab, Stephen P. Kaufman. With Kaufman's support over the last several years, this certificate program was created for MIT graduate students and postdoctoral researchers who wish to develop their teaching skills. It is designed for participants with a variety of interests and career goals: from those who wish to develop better skills to support their teaching at MIT, to those who are planning careers in academe.
Upon completion of the program requirements, participants receive a certificate and letter from the Dean for Graduate Education outlining the program and confirming completion of all program requirements. This letter can be submitted with applications for teaching positions as evidence of a commitment to the teaching enterprise.
