The Teaching to Learning (T2L) theme’s primary objective is to shift the focus of the MIT instructional staff (i.e., faculty, instructors, teaching assistants) from teaching to learning. This implies a shift in the classroom from what instructors do or put in, to what students absorb and take away from the experience. T2L initiatives aim for classroom approaches that revolve not only around what topics the instructor covers, her or his lecturing skill and the ability to impart a set of facts, but also on helping students understand important ideas, master crucial skills and be motivated to learn.
