Provoking Valuable Conversations | MIT J-WEL

Provoking Valuable Conversations

Through active events and communications channels, we host discussions that advance our understanding of pressing challenges in workplace learning for workers and organizations.


J-WEL Weeks/Connections

Twice a year, the three J-WEL Collaboratives - pK-12, Higher Education, and Workforce Learning - 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 explore mechanisms for implementation within a variety of contexts. 

Purpose-Driven Convenings

Workforce Learning also hosts conferences and workshops throughout the year. Recent events include:

Human Skills: From Conversations to Convergence: At this full day event, we learned from experts who are pioneering novel ways of teaching and measuring human skills, and determined how we might move towards a common understanding about how to train and assess these skills across the workforce ecosystem. 

From Trainer to Transformer: During this half-day event, we learned from experts who are driving new transformations in learning, and examined together how we might rethink career advice to better serve workers, companies, and the workforce ecosystem.


These digitally-delivered seminars and workshops include early results and robust research findings from current projects, as well as interviews with chief learning officers and other experts in the workforce learning space. Learn more.


We talk with leaders in academia, edtech, and beyond about the ways people learn. Learn more.
