MIT Jameel World Education Lab
For more than 150 years, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has challenged assumptions about learning, research, and impact in academia.
The Jameel World Education Lab takes this mission to the world. We are MIT’s connection point for educational innovators everywhere, enriching ongoing conversations by drawing in global faculty and other experts and co-designing practical innovations that broaden our knowledge. Through our work, we aim to define the cutting edge of educational practice that delivers global impact and transforms learning for all.
Campus as Catalyst
How can we make the most of the spaces—physical, virtual, societal—that can connect educational institutions to their community, industry, and society?
Pathways for Talent
How can educational institutions help people of all ages and circumstances find the pathway to learning and opportunity that works for them?
How can new insights from research and practice improve the design of learning experiences?
“I realized in J-WEL’s workshops the many different active learning methodologies by which students can be encouraged and challenged to solve complex real-world problems leading to deeper learning by which students can create, evaluate, and analyze.”
