The goal of the annual TLL Speakers Series is to disseminate evidence-based teaching practices to our MIT community — from faculty and instructors to staff and students. This year’s series will:
(1) will focus on insights gained through navigating the unique challenges that the pandemic has placed on our students and teaching community,
(2) while highlighting the pedagogical principles underlying those insights and practices.
The series will provide opportunities for introspection and discussion, in order to support and empower the MIT teaching community this year, and beyond.
The 2020-2021 academic year was in its challenges, reinforcing the importance of building community, staying connected, and remaining engaged, even while largely at a distance. Last year’s TLL Speaker Series focused on how MIT educators can inclusively support students across the institute, whether they learn remotely or in person.
The content of each talk of this series is summarized in the following articles, including embedded recordings and additional resources.
