The Yale Summer Institute on Course (Re)Design at the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning helps instructors:
- Examine principles of how people learn and apply them to teaching
- Identify assessment strategies to strengthen connections between student learning and course assignments
- Identify and refine components of classes that can be made more inclusive
- Identify strategic actions to strengthen the culture of teaching and learning at Yale
The Institute provides time and space to design classroom materials. It is also a wonderful opportunity to connect with colleagues from across the campus.
Dr. Jennifer Frederick, Executive Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning will lead the 2020 Summer Institute on Course (Re)Design with facilitators from the Yale community.
The Institute will take place from Tuesday, May 26 through Thursday, May 28. The application for the 2020 SI will open in March 2020.
If you have any questions, please email Victoria Hallinan. Please note: The institute is designed for, and funded by a source designated for, Yale faculty. We cannot accept applicants from other campuses. We encourage faculty or visiting faculty to explore the Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching.
More than 140 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. To ensure we develop a well-resourced community, we limit the number of participants in each cohort to 65 people.
