Please join Dr. Saif Rayyan as he provides an overview and answers questions about the upcoming J-WEL workshop, "Remotely" Designing for Learning: From Principles to Practice. This workshop series introduces evidence-based practices for the design and implementation of learning experiences in person and remotely. 

The Digital Credentials Consortium was founded by 12 universities to bridge the gap between traditional academic credentials and the future of digital credentials. Core to our approach are W3C Verifiable Credentials and related standards, which enable a new digital credential infrastructure for today’s learner – one informed by learner welfare, rights, and agency.
 
Learn about our approach, the communities we work with, the challenges we are working on, and to get involved.            

This workshop series introduces evidence-based practices for the design and implementation of learning experiences in person and remotely. You will apply practical strategies and tools to create a student-centered curriculum grounded in instructional design principles. The workshop will introduce findings from the learning sciences, where you will have the opportunity to reflect on teaching practices and discuss with moderators and peers. You will be offered opportunities to engage in hands-on activities to create prototypes of digital or face-to-face lesson content. Several guest speakers will introduce examples of best practices employed at MIT in different disciplines. Throughout the workshop you will engage in discussions around how you might  transform a course or part of a course that you are teaching based on what you learn in the workshop. 

The MIT NEET / J-WEL Educational Envisioning and Planning Workshop will leave with refined ideas on ways to rethink and transform engineering education at their own institutions, as well as with an initial version of a ‘to-do’ list for implementing their ideas over the six months following the workshop.
