The Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce the 2020-2021 recipients of the Associates in Teaching award.

The AT program supports GSAS doctoral students as they team-teach Yale College courses with faculty members. Initiated in 2009, this program allows students to 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.
