Upcoming Dates: May 25 - 28, 2021

As it has in the past, the Yale Summer Institute on Course (Re)Design at the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning helps instructors:

  1. Examine principles of how people learn and apply them to teaching
  2. Identify assessment strategies to strengthen connections between student learning and course assignments
  3. Identify and refine components of classes that can be made more inclusive
  4. Identify strategic actions to strengthen the culture of teaching and learning at Yale

If you have any questions, please email the Faculty Teaching Initiatives team.

More than 150 faculty members have completed the Summer Institute on Course (Re)Design at Yale. The institute works best when we are able to build a community dedicated to examining the principles of excellent pedagogy.
