Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Teaching @ Yale Day (T@YD)

Join us for Teaching at Yale Day, an event to orient graduate students and professional school students who are new to teaching at Yale.

Attendees will:

  • Learn how to establish equitable learning environments;
  • Gain insight into the student and faculty perspectives on graduate teaching and the role of the teaching fellow;
  • Received an introduction to the many teaching resources available at Yale;
  • Discover how you engage students online.

This program is a requirement for all GSAS first-time teaching fellows (TFs) and new part-time acting instructors (PTAIs), with the exception of language part-time acting instructors. If you are teaching a language course (or are a Fullbright Language Teaching Assistant), you should instead participate in the Center for Language Study Pedagogy Workshop which is specifically designed for language instructors. Professional school students are encouraged to join us. 

Fall 2023 Teaching at Yale Day has been scheduled for August 28th, 2023, and it will include some required in-person events held on that day. During the week of August 21st, we’ll also host “Engaging Students,” a required, synchronous, 90-minute workshop held over Zoom. A full schedule will be released later in the summer. In the meantime, if you’d like to know what to expect, you can review the schedule from Spring 2023 Teaching at Yale Day below, which contains links to last year’s events and resources.
