News about teaching at Yale:

As of July 1, 2014, the CST is joining with other teaching support units on campus to form a consolidated Yale Center for Teaching and Learning. This Center will be under the direction of the Provost’s office and will support students, post docs and faculty throughout the University. Jennifer Frederick has been appointed the Executive Director of the Yale Center for Teaching and Learning, reporting to Professor Scott Strobel, Deputy Provost for Teaching and Learning. The creation of the new center emphasizes the importance of Yale's educational mission, and we look forward to working with our campus partners to support teaching and learning excellence.
