LINC Pre-Conference Workshop 2: MIT Bootcamps


Date and Time: Monday, June 17th

Morning Workshop, 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.


Workshop Description

Hosted by Erdin Beshimov, Director of MIT Bootcamps

Five years ago, the first MIT Bootcamp was held on the MIT campus. The week-long, in-person program was inspired by the enthusiasm and curiosity of the learners of Entrepreneurship 101, a MOOC that had gone live only 3 months earlier, to experience MIT. Since that first Bootcamp, the program has evolved to be hosted several times a year—not just at MIT, but also internationally in such countries as Australia, Japan, Brazil, and more. Students from over 90 countries have participated, and alumni of the program have started over 250 ventures and raised over $70 million in funding.
Even with the program’s success, each new Bootcamp comes with changes to the format and curriculum. In this workshop, the Director of MIT Bootcamps will lead participants through the philosophies and research that have impacted this program’s development and success. The participants will explore the case study of how a breakthrough innovation, followed by rapid, numerous incremental innovations, generated a new model of blended learning for the world.
