-Volunteer opportunity to work with the Yale Center for Teaching and Learning (formerly the Center for Scientific Teaching, now plus 7 other units: http://ctl.yale.edu) to continue a popular program in 2014-2015. The Teaching and Learning Lunches were started in 2012 as a way to build community around informal discussions with faculty and instructors in STEM departments. Since then, they have become a popular and well-attended series that requires relatively low effort to organize. Ideally, I would like to find a team of two volunteers to do the following:

-Meet with Jenny to brainstorm a list of people to lead the informal discussions

-Collaborate with Jenny to invite people to lead these discussions, and work with Enit Colon to schedule them (6-8 for the academic year, on science hill)

-The CTL will buy lunch and schedule the room, plus publicize the events

-Attend the lunches and introduce the guest, lightly facilitate q/a as needed

If you are interested, please email Jenny and cc enit.colon@yale.edu by Thursday, September 25, with “Teaching and Learning Lunch volunteer” in the subject line.
