Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Fundamentals of Teaching

Fundamentals of Teaching workshops are four-part series that introduce the theory and practice of teaching in an interactive setting. The series are adapted topically to promote deep conversations around teaching, whether those are disciplinary-specific or constellate around a theme (Equitable Teaching, for example). Yale graduate students, professional students, and postdocs are welcome to register and attend.

Attending at least three out of four Fundamentals of Teaching workshops is required for completion of the Certificate of College Teaching Preparation (CCTP) for graduate students (postdocs should complete the CIRTL MOOC or the Scientific Teaching Fellows course – review these requirements here).
