J-WEL Higher Education Workshops

J-WEL Higher Education Workshops are hands-on, outcome-oriented programs held both at the MIT campus and online. Participants will leave with implementable output to be scaled and contextualized for each university and country. Participants may design curriculum, change pedagogy, build new programs or alter organizational structure. Workshops are organized and conducted by MIT Faculty and senior staff.

If you are a J-WEL member, you receive either a significant discount on J-WEL seats, or they are included as part of your membership package. Non-J-WEL members are able to purchase seats for most J-WEL Workshops.
