Teaching for the 21st Century Exploratory Committee

Committee : 

Purpose:

The mandate of the Teaching for the 21st Century Exploratory committee is to think broadly about the goals and ideals of undergraduate education in the 21st century, given changes in the intellectual landscape and the size and demographics of Yale’s undergraduate student body. Among the topics it will explore are: modes of pedagogy, technology within and beyond the classroom, interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary teaching, the relation between graduate and undergraduate teaching, the role of ladder and non-ladder faculty, similarities and differences across academic divisions, and models and ideas from other institutions, including universities, colleges and K-12 institutions. The committee will write a brief report identifying common themes, challenges and innovations that face the FAS, and will recommend a number of successor committees to explore and implement these ideas.
