Member Program Opportunities


page updated 18 January 2022

 


Member access to J-WEL program opportunities is managed via "seat-weeks" (i.e. the equivalent of one person participating in a week-long in-person event on the MIT campus).  Each membership level provides members at that level with the number of seats indicated below.

 
Annual Benefit by Membership Level
Affiliate Sustaining Comprehensive/Charter
4 seat-weeks 22 seat-weeks 66 seat-weeks

The programs listed below are opportunities for which member seat-weeks can be applied. In some cases, the programs also offer members the opportunity to purchase discounted seats if the member allocation of seat-weeks has been used. Some programs are also open to non-member participation. Please contact the J-WEL staff for more information on applying membership seat-weeks. Please also see the listing of Member Ancillary Opportunities
 

J-WEL Weeks





J-WEL Weeks are our signature events, bringing our membership together with the MIT community. We convene for relevant presentations, research briefs, hands-on exercises, panels, and workshops. Throughout the program, in collaboration with MIT faculty and staff, members are exposed to new education research and practice at MIT and are challenged to address their own most impactful educational challenges or opportunities.
