Member organizations work with our team to develop a three-year program of engagement for each member to address specific member needs and interests. Equally important, the initial interactions help us to identify the best membership options for meeting these goals. The building blocks for our member engagements are our program opportunities and ancillary opportunities.
Throughout the year, the Jameel World Education Lab works with our members to develop in- person and virtual events that bring together the global experience and perspectives of our members with experts from across MIT. MIT faculty, researchers, and staff share the latest in effective practice and learning science through presentations, hands-on activities and working sessions tailored to member’s’ engagement goals. Programs range from large events with a wide view of educational transformation—our Jameel World Education Lab Weeks and Connections events—to smaller events with more focused topics and member participation—our Workshops and Exchanges.
Jameel World Education Lab Weeks
Jameel World Education Lab Weeks are our signature events, bringing our membership together with the MIT community. We convene for relevant presentations, research briefs, hands-on exercises, panels, and workshops. Throughout the program, in collaboration with MIT faculty and staff, members are exposed to new education research and practice at MIT and are challenged to address their own most impactful educational challenges or opportunities.
Jameel World Education Lab Connections
Jameel World Education Lab Connections is our marquee online gathering. Connections is an exploration of the frontiers of educational transformation worldwide. During Connections, we host a series of synchronous and asynchronous activities designed to help our members address their educational challenges and opportunities, and to develop solutions with global applicability.
Jameel World Education Lab Exchanges and Workshops
Jameel World Education Lab Exchanges and Workshops are deep dives into topics of relevance to the needs of a subset of our membership. These programs provide the opportunity for our members to work closely with faculty and researchers from the MIT community and each other to achieve measurable impact in addressing their education transformation goals.
