Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Semester-long Learning Communities

The Poorvu Center offers semester-long faculty learning communities to support the transition back to in-person teaching. These timely and topical learning communities convene every 2-3 weeks throughout the semester to reflect on teaching practices and to share effective strategies and resources. For those participating in the Faculty Teaching Academy for new faculty, attending 5 out of 6 sessions fulfills the learning community component.

Spring 2022 Learning Communities:

We are offering two learning communities for Yale faculty during the Spring 2021 semester on Zoom. Faculty are invited to join a community that most closely resonates with their disciplinary background and/or teaching context:

  • Humanities & Social Sciences (Wednesdays 1-2PM on Zoom: Jan 26, Feb 9, Feb 23, Mar 9, Apr 6, Apr 20)
  • STEM (Thursdays 11:45AM-12:45PM on Zoom: Jan 27, Feb 17, Mar 3, Mar 31, Apr 14, Apr 28)

Our Spring 2022 registration form is now closed. If interested in joining an existing community, please contact the facilitator listed above.
