For the last two and a half years, the Teaching and Learning Lab has been developing educational videos. While it’s true that TLL led the development of these videos, it was really a collaborative effort involving MIT faculty, instructors, post-docs, graduate students, and our on-campus Academic Media Production Services (AMPS). Funded through the MIT - Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) collaboration, the videos target content from the first three semesters of the undergraduate curriculum at SUTD. Many of the courses students take in their first three semesters at SUTD look very similar to MIT GIR courses and the prerequisite courses for many STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) undergraduate programs across the U.S. The videos are meant to supplement classroom instruction. Instructors might use snippets of video in class or students might watch them outside of class to review a concept or prepare for class discussion.
