Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

STEM Education and Evaluation

The Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching provide intensive training in undergraduate instruction for STEM faculty and future faculty at colleges and universities throughout the United States.
The CTL STEM Education Seminar & Journal Club series provides opportunities to learn about the latest research and initatives in science education. The series is generously supported by the Helmsley Charitable Trust.
The goal of the Yale Scientific Teaching Fellows Course is to improve undergraduate science education by training a new generation scientific teachers at Yale (graduate students and postdocs) to bring the spirit and rigor of research into the undergraduate classroom.
The STEM Evaluation Program is a field leader in systems-based evaluation of STEM education initiatives. We aim to contribute to the national dialogue on evidence-based education by contributing to large-scale grant-funded evaluation initiatives. Our team embraces interdisciplinary, collaborative, and systems-based approaches to evaluation.
DiversiTeas is a speaker series established at Yale to highlight issues of diversity in the STEM fields. The program was created through a joint effort of undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty at Yale. By bringing in scientists, authors, and other experts on issues around diversity we hope to spark meaningful discussions to create a more inclusive environment on campus.
