Opportunities for Faculty
TLL provides faculty with various opportunities to complement their knowledge of instruction in their specific fields. We work individually with faculty members or with groups of faculty or faculty committees. Senior TLL staff members have doctoral-level degrees in engineering, the physical sciences, or social sciences so that staff members are assigned projects based on their disciplinary background as well as their expertise in teaching and learning.
TLL itself organizes or helps Schools and departments to organize workshops that introduce new faculty to teaching at MIT. Orientations are usually held at the beginning of the academic year, but arrangements can be made to hold workshops at the beginning of the spring semester as well.
