2018-19 Speaker Series

The theme for the 2018 - 2019 academic year of the TLL Speaker Series was the first-year student experience. The creation of more opportunities to meaningfully explore majors during the first year was one of the central recommendations that emerged from students in the spring 2018 Designing the First Year Experience class and is at the core of the 2018 CUP First-year Experiment.

The series aimed to generate dialogue on improving the undergraduate and graduate educational experience across our teaching and learning community at MIT. Speakers highlight current trends, new models, and research, while drawing from their own experience in academic innovation.
