Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Semester-long Learning Communities

The Poorvu Center offers semester-long faculty learning communities to support teaching in the remote context. These timely and topical learning communities will convene every other week 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 will fulfill the learning community component.

Spring 2021 Learning Communities:

  • General Remote Teaching Strategies (Mondays 11 a.m.-12 p.m. OR Tuesdays 1-2 p.m.)
  • Teaching Large Lectures (Mondays 4-5 p.m.)
  • Teaching Science and Labs (Thursdays 9-10 a.m.)

Spring 2021 learning communities will begin in early to mid-February and meet every other week through late April. Learning community sessions will be held via Zoom.
