Who we are and what we do


The mission of the Teaching and Learning Lab is to partner with MIT educators, staff, and administrators to create an educational environment where students are academically challenged, actively engaged, and personally supported. Our teaching and learning and evaluation and assessment experts do this by:

  • sharing research-based strategies for lesson, subject, and program design and development.

  • educating others about student-centered pedagogies.

  • collaborating and consulting with MIT educators to brainstorm opportunities and solutions for their teaching context.

  • collecting data through the evaluation of educational innovations and assessment of student outcomes to provide constructive, practical, and informative feedback to educators.
