Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Course (Re)Design Institute

The 2023 Course (Re)Design Institute will be held May 23-25, 2023. 

Through the Poorvu Center’s Course (Re)Design Institute, participants will: 

  • Join a vibrant and supportive teaching and learning community of Yale instructors and Poorvu Center staff
  • Explore pedagogical approaches through interactive workshops on equity-focused teaching, student-centered learning, assessment, active learning, and community and belonging
  • Apply knowledge gained from workshops to make progress on the design and planning of your course during structured work time
  • Become aware of Poorvu Center and university resources available to support you and your students throughout your course

More than 200 faculty members have completed the Yale Course (Re)Design Institute. The institute works best when we build a community dedicated to examining the principles of excellent pedagogy and when participants are able to be present throughout the in-person, multi-day institute.
