Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Course (Re)Design Institute

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

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 equitable and inclusive 
  4. Identify strategic actions to strengthen the culture of teaching and learning at Yale

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.
