Sara Sanchez Alonso
Sara Sanchez-Alonso is a sixth year doctoral candidate in the Linguistics Department. Her dissertation studies the cognitive sources of language change. Specifically, she investigates the variations observed across dialects of Modern Spanish.
She was the recipient last year of a Yale Digital Education Innovation Grant for the Project “WikiBrain: A Language-Brain Mapping Wiki”. This project is the result of her commitment to excellence both in teaching and research. In Spring 2017, she will co-teach the course “Neurolinguistics” in which she will implement the newly-developed platform.
This year will be Sara’s third year as a fellow at the CTL. Apart from facilitating teaching workshops, she will be involved in developing new teaching materials for incoming teaching fellows. She is excited to work on this project because of the impact teaching materials can have on the larger teaching community at Yale. She looks forward to continue working with the CTL to create a community that values and encourages teaching and pass on her knowledge to incoming fellows.
