Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Methodology

The Graduate Writing Lab is committed to keeping up with recent and effective pedagogy in the areas of scholarly research, writing, and communication. Our current programming follows the innovative models of the student-centered approach, backward design in workshop development, and principles of scientific teaching. We design our programs to provide conceptual takeaways to scholars by helping them practice specific skills within targeted academic genres and writing styles. The Directors of the GWL have training and publishing expertise in a wide range of professional writing modes and disciplines, from Linguistics to Literary Analysis, to Popular Culture and American Studies, and to creative and public writing. In tandem, the GWL Staff—our Writing Fellows, Consultants, and Administrators—reflects the rich disciplinary, methodological, and representational paradigm of the Yale and larger New Haven professional and graduate community. We welcome your presence and input in helping us continue to serve the needs and interests of the Yale academic community!
