Curriculum and Course Design Workshops contribute towards the development of new, productive curriculum that will motivate students and promote achievement and success by addressing curriculum design and implementation, with emphasis on MIT-style pedagogy, problem-solving methods, Science of Learning, and digital tools. Current lecturers or faculty who will teach an upcoming course are encouraged to attend. 

Join us at MIT for the LINC Conference, which brings an international group of researchers and practitioners together to discuss how new insights from learning science, emerging pedagogical approaches, and digital learning approaches can provide quality education at scale, particularly in developing nations and emerging markets.

One of four LINC pre-conference workshops, this workshop will introduce MIT BLOSSOMS, a 10-country partnership creating an ever-growing repository of free, online active learning video lessons for high school math, science, and engineering classes.

One of four LINC pre-conference workshops, the MIT Bootcamps Workshop is a space to share lessons learned from the MIT Bootcamps blended learning model. 

One of four LINC pre-conference workshops, the Active Learning: From Principles to Practice Bootcamps Workshop will review the idea of active learning over the past few decades, and then describe Chi’s ICAP Framework as an evidence-based approach to planning active learning activities for students and understanding their outcomes. 

One of four LINC pre-conference workshops, the Engaging Digital Learning Experiences Workshop is a space to share lessons learned from developing and executing MOOCs and blended/hybrid learning projects and showcase innovations in design, assessment, and implementation.

Facilitated by Drs. Peter Senge and Mette Boell, this is the semi-annual capacity building workshop for the global community of schools, local communities, educators and people who work directly with youth outside of schools as well. 

The High-Impact Research Workshop showcases MIT research programs; high-impact publishing; personnel training; and research proposal writing. Moving research results from the university to commercialization is increasingly important; therefore, exposure to the MIT innovation culture is also part of the Workshop.

Who should attend: Nascent researchers who have previously written a research proposal.

 

The three J-WEL Collaboratives—pK-12, Higher Education, and Workplace Learning—will convene for relevant presentations, research briefs, hands-on exercises, panels, and workshops. Throughout the program, in collaboration with MIT faculty and staff, members will be challenged to define their key goals and mechanisms for implementation.
