The May 2019 Yale Summer Institute on Course (Re)Design at the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning will help instructors:
- Examine principles of how people learn and apply them to teaching
- Identify assessment strategies to strengthen connections between student learning and course assignments
- Identify and refine components of classes that can be made more inclusive
- Identify strategic actions to strengthen the culture of teaching and learning at Yale
The Institute will provide time and space to design classroom materials. It is also a wonderful opportunity to connect with colleagues from across the campus.
Dr. Jennifer Frederick, Executive Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning, and Dr. Nancy Niemi, Director of Faculty Teaching Initiatives, will lead the 2019 Summer Institute on Course (Re)Design with facilitators from the Yale community.
The Institute will take place from Tuesday, May 21 through Thursday, May 23. View the 2018 schedule for an idea of the time committment - the 2019 schedule will be announced in Early-April 2019. The application for the 2019 SI is now open and will close on Tuesday, April 30, 2019.
