Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Course (Re)Design Institute

The 2022 Course (Re)Design Institute will be held May 24-26, 2022. Registration is now closed.

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

More than 150 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 multi-day institute.
