Curriculum Design is a collegial, intensive, and collaborative program designed to meet the challenges present in higher education by introducing participants to MIT's unique approaches to problem-solving, learning science, entrepreneurship, and the use of online tools.

Curriculum Design Workshop participants develop curriculum reform, contributing to student success and the economic trajectory of their country. Curriculum Design was previously run with participants from Tunisia in order to rebuild life sciences curriculum across the country. A participant from the 2017 program shared the following description of his experience:

“The very inspiring Curriculum Design Workshop helped me to improve my way of teaching, to introduce entrepreneurship in life sciences, to train young teachers by sharing my own experience at MIT, and to implement a system able to sustain and support the use of new innovative tools.”

Curriculum Design comprises four modules, each led by distinguished MIT professors, as well as instructors from multiple units at MIT, including the Teaching and Learning Lab, Office of Digital Learning, MIT Integrative Learning Initiative, Martin Trust, Legatum Center, Sloan School of Management, School of Science, School of Engineering, and the School of Architecture and Planning.

Modules include:

  • Learning Science
  • Digital Tools
