Teaching and Learning Laboratory
The MIT Teaching and Learning Laboratory, which began in 1997, collaborates with faculty, administrators, and students to strengthen ongoing educational efforts at MIT and develop innovations in pedagogy and technology. As part of the Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Education, TLL offers its own programs and works in partnership with MIT schools and departments on their educational initiatives.
TLL has three interrelated functions:
- Collaboration to strengthen instruction at MIT—both inside and outside the classroom.
- Support for the development and assessment of innovative pedagogies, educational technologies, and curricula.
- Research in learning process, particularly in science and engineering.
The three functions support one another and allow TLL to provide a full range of services to the MIT community. The diagram below provides some examples of our work in these three areas.
