Associates in Teaching Courses Lineup for Fall 2017 and Spring 2018

May 1, 2017

The Graduate School and the Yale Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) are pleased to announce the selection of eleven courses for next year’s Associates in Teaching (AT) program. Through the AT program, PhD students and faculty members team-teach courses in Yale College. Initiated in 2009, the program enables doctoral students to conceptualize or redesign, plan, and deliver an undergraduate course in partnership with a Yale faculty member, facilitating expanded teaching opportunities for graduate students, encouraging team teaching between disciplines, and creating new curricula.

This year, twenty-six applications were considered and eleven were chosen. The Selection Committee included 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.
