Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

STEM Education Seminar & Journal Club Series

The goal of the Yale CTL STEM Education Seminar & Journal Club Series is to foster discussion of evidence-based teaching practices among current and future teachers, science educators and researchers at Yale and in our neighboring educational community. We welcome speakers who are willing to share their teaching and learning innovations as well as the implementation and dissemination of these practices in their home campuses and beyond.

Each month, we invite experts to speak with interested students, postdocs and faculty. A few days before each speaker’s visit, one of our Helmsley Postdoctoral Teaching Scholars facilitates a journal club discussing a STEM education publication by the speaker. 

Refreshments are provided at all seminars and journal clubs. Please register for journal clubs; seminars do not require registration.

The STEM Education Seminar & Journal Club Series is generously supported by the Helmsley Charitable Trust.
