Ad Hoc Committee on Leveraging Best Practices from Remote Teaching for On-Campus Education
Krishna Rajagopal, Janet Rankin
What are the things that we learned how to do during the pandemic that faculty and instructors across MIT are now, already, building into their on-campus teaching? The Ad Hoc Committee on Leveraging Best Practices from Remote Teaching for On-Campus Education has asked this question broadly across MIT.
Vice Chancellor Ian Waitz convened the MIT Committee on Student Career Exploration and Services to review aspects and activities associated with student career exploration and services, and to identify changes that would enhance exploration of, and access to, a broad range of careers in a manner that best serves student needs.
This subcommittee examined the emergence of undergraduate and graduate sub-term subjects across the Institute through an understanding of: (1) the overall trends and current situation, (2) the motivating aspirations and goals, and (3) the pedagogical value and the effects on student learning and life of such offerings.
