Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

STEM Education Seminar Series

The goal of the Yale Poorvu Center STEM Education Seminar Series is to foster discussion of evidence-based teaching practices among current and future teachers, science educators and researchers at Yale and in our neighboring educational community. Each month, we invite experts to speak with interested students, postdocs and faculty. We welcome speakers who are willing to share their teaching and learning innovations as well as the implementation and dissemination of these practices in their home campuses and beyond.

The STEM Education Seminar Series is generously supported by The Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning. Past funding has been generously supported by the Helmsley Charitable Trust as well as by Bruce & Julie Goldsmith.
