What is distinctive about teaching at Yale-NUS College? Our emphasis on student-centred, active, inquiry-based teaching. Our curriculum was designed from the beginning to bring small groups of students into deep conversation, and inquiry about topics across the academic spectrum. Our professors strive to bring their scholarship into the classroom and approach their subjects with energy and creativity.
Our Centre for Teaching and Learning at Yale-NUS College has gathered profiles of some of our impactful teachers here on campus and asked them to describe their approach to teaching, and what is special about teaching at Yale-NUS College. Their responses (below) provide insight into our unique Yale-NUS College classroom environments, and the diversity and energy of our Yale-NUS College teaching culture.
