Welcome! We’re excited for you to begin teaching at Yale. The Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning is here to support you and your students as you make this transition. As part of a world-class research institution, we provide training, consultations, and resources designed to make teaching and learning more public and collaborative, so that every Yale instructor experiences the satisfaction that results from teaching well, and every student develops the critical reflection that marks deep and independent learning.
All new ladder and instructional faculty who regularly teach Yale College undergraduates are eligible to participate in the Poorvu Center’s Faculty Teaching Academy to support their professional growth as teachers. Eligibility includes instructors whose primary appointment is in a professional school and who teach Yale College undergraduates.
