MIT is committed to creating an effective learning environment for undergraduate students. From interactive lectures and recitations to hands-on projects, teamwork, and problem-based learning, the goal is to help students better understand important ideas and master crucial intellectual skills, and to kindle curiosity and excitement. Students gain the fundamental knowledge and problem solving skills needed to prepare them for a lifetime of learning and leadership.
At the core of MIT’s commitment to an effective learning environment is a commitment to educational innovation in the undergraduate curriculum, pedagogy, and educational technology. DUE, in collaboration with the MIT faculty, develops, promotes and propagates educational innovation at MIT. Through the focused work of Curriculum & Faculty Support (CFS) and the Teaching and Learning Laboratory (TLL), DUE is enhancing student learning through educational innovation. Two areas of focus are:
- supporting ongoing curriculum innovation that prepares MIT graduates as global innovators and leaders; and
- fostering excellence in teaching and pedagogical approaches that strengthen learning.
