Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Semester-long Learning Communities

The Poorvu Center offers semester-long faculty learning communities to support community and reflection around teaching practices through the sharing of strategies and resources. The learning communities convene every 2-3 weeks throughout the semester and are tailored to the needs of the group. For those participating in the Faculty Teaching Academy for new faculty, attending 5 out of 6 sessions fulfills the learning community component.

We are hosting two communities: 

  • STEM Learning Community- Fridays, 9-10am (Jan. 27, Feb. 10, Feb. 24, Mar. 10, Mar. 31, and Apr. 21)
  • Humanities/Social Science Learning Community- Wednesdays, 1-2pm (Feb. 1, Feb. 15, Mar. 1, Mar. 29, Apr. 12, and Apr. 26)
