The competitive Associates in Teaching (AT) program, offered in collaboration between the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning, allows Ph.D. students to expand their teaching experiences and responsibilities in partnership with a faculty member.
During the spring semester, grants in the amount of $1,000 are awarded to Yale GSAS students or Postdoctoral Fellows to support the creation of new and innovative educational opportunities for prommoting learning. Teaching Innovation Project (TIP) grants are made possible by generous contributions from the Rosenkranz Fund.

Like research, when we treat teaching as an iterative process informed by data about student learning, we improve our teaching and opportunities for student learning.
