Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Teaching as Research Program

Teaching as Research (TAR) projects give graduate students, professional students, and postdocs the opportunity to develop curriculum and assessment strategies that address challenges in teaching and improve learning outcomes for students. Projects are implemented through instructor partnerships at Yale. The Poorvu Center will create a network for those interested in doing a TAR project with faculty members who welcome these partnerships or experience specific challenges in their courses. Alternatively, teaching fellows or scholars may wish to implement TAR projects in their own courses or discussion sections.

Please contact Assistant Director of Graduate and Postdoctoral Teaching Development, Gina M. Hurley, with questions.
