Teaching Opportunities

Tufts Undergraduates: Teach an ExCollege Course


Peer Teaching
Each spring, the ExCollege runs peer-taught courses that, unlike Explorations, can have either a single instructor or a pair, and are open to all Tufts undergraduates.

Peer Teachers are required to take EXP-0101-ZS Peer Teaching and EXP-0103-ZS Theory and Practice of Participatory Education during the semester their class is taught. The Theory and Practice of Participatory Education seminar meets once a week, during the Monday Open Block. Teachers share experiences, and may be asked to make brief reports on alternative teaching methods, educational philosophies, or other topics.

In total, Peer Teachers will receive 4 semester hour units (SHUs), graded on a pass/fail basis.

PLEASE NOTE: Peer Teaching applications are due early in the fall semester so that accepted courses will be ready for November registration.

Not sure what to teach or how to formulate a proposal? The Director of the Experimental College will meet individually with prospective Peer Teachers to discuss ideas and answer questions.

For more information, stop by the ExCollege Office at 95 Talbot Avenue, call us at 617.627.3384 or email excollege@tufts.edu.
