The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), with support from the Yale Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), is pleased to announce courses selected for the AY 2017-2018 Associates in Teaching (AT) program.

The AT program supports Yale College courses team-taught by GSAS doctoral students and faculty members. Initiated in 2009, this program requires that doctoral students conceptualize or redesign, plan, and deliver an undergraduate course in partnership with a Yale faculty member. Evidence from previous years indicates that the program provides expanded teaching opportunities for graduate students, facilitates team teaching between disciplines, and creates pedagogically exciting opportunities for undergraduate student learning and development of new curriculum.

This year, twenty-six applications were considered and ten were selected. The Selection Committee was comprised of three faculty members who have previously taught AT courses and who represent the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences Divisions, as well as Graduate School and CTL representatives.
