Scientific Teaching Course


The Yale Scientific Teaching Course works to improve undergraduate STEM education by training a new generation of scientific teachers to bring the spirit and rigor of research into the undergraduate classroom. Graduate students and postdocs who take Theory and Practice of Scientific Teaching develop a working knowledge of scientific teaching, namely how to engage students through active learning, how to effectively use assessments to gauge student learning, and how to build an inclusive learning environment for all students. Course participants apply scientific teaching to the development of teaching materials for an undergraduate science course, and receive encouragement to submit these materials to peer-reviewed journals and databases for widespread dissemination.
