About this event

While the pandemic constrained and limited our MIT community in various ways, it also forced us to reflect on and rethink our assumptions about effective teaching and learning. 

During the spring 2021 semester, we interviewed MIT faculty, instructors, and lecturers to explore their insights from teaching through a pandemic. Join us for this panel discussion and live Q&A with MIT educators who participated as interviewees in the Fresh Perspectives video series.

About Fresh Perspectives

“Fresh Perspectives” is a new ongoing video and audio series launched Summer 2021 with “Insights from Teaching through a Pandemic,” a set of interviews meant to capture some of the effective teaching techniques adopted during the 2020-2021 school year that could translate well to post-pandemic education.

The interviews with MIT faculty, instructors, and lecturers that comprise this series explore universally important educational goals. These include building community, designing effective course components, and creating clear two-way communication with students about their learning. They offer perspectives on ways to continue these practices in our physical classrooms and learning spaces moving forward.
