CCT participants should successfully complete two courses in college teaching. This can include any combination of Graduate School or discipline-specific pedagogy courses offered by a department or program.

You can complete the coursework requirement at any time before graduation. Ideally, you would take the courses immediately before or in conjunction with your teaching experience. Each semester, students can request permission numbers for GS classes in the following term using an online form (via the CCT listserv) that helps program administrators prioritize and distribute them. There are limited number of permission numbers for each class, and when they are all given out, the class is full. Duke Hub may not reflect this, and there may appear to be open seats in classes that are, in fact, full with a waitlist. Most classes typically fill up, so the best way to get a class is to reply promptly to the CCT listserv announcement that provides the link to request permission numbers. This announcement usually goes out in March (for the following fall) and October (for the following spring.)
