J-WEL Workforce Learning

Revitalizing workforce learning to fulfill the potential of the next generation for the industries of tomorrow, while also keeping today’s workforce nimble, productive, and engaged.


J-WEL Workforce Learning works with its members and other cooperating institutions to rethink the process of workforce learning -- to provide the right skills to the right people at the right time, at scale.  For corporations, we conduct research and experiments that help chief learning officers and other business executives to innovate the way they train workers and develop talent in their organizations. For individuals, we seek to provide research-driven advice, right-sized learning, and tools that can help them make their individual competencies evident to potential employers. For governments and non-profit institutions, we seek to conduct pilot programs and build research-driven tools to improve workforce learning and job readiness for underserved significant segments of society.  

To learn more about our efforts, contact Faculty Advisor George Westerman at georgew AT mit.edu or Assistant Director Susan Young at susany AT mit.edu.

J-WEL Weeks

J-WEL Weeks are signature, goal-oriented programs that provide members with first-hand access to MIT’s educational resources and practice. J-WEL weeks will bring the community of collaborators together to jointly share analyses and propose and review results from experiments that could be used to design and develop solutions to our member’s pressing problems. The week is designed to stimulate new thinking and to develop human- and customer-centric approaches for envisioning and designing new learning experiences that yield tangible results.
