Global Teaching Labs Speaker Series
Teaching through the Global Teaching Labs in Wales programme was the most unique experience I’ve had at MIT so far. The opportunity to speak with the Minister for Education in Wales was remarkable. I deeply appreciate the opportunity to speak with people who have made such impactful changes to a whole education system. Overall, teaching in Wales was an incredible opportunity that I cannot express the full value.MISTI GTL Instructor
I want to take the opportunity to thank Equal Education Partners and the MIT instructors for what has been a very beneficial experience, and one in which we would like to participate again. All the live sessions have been very well-received and this has been a very worthwhile experience for our pupils and certainly an effective way to broaden their horizons.Deputy Headteacher
The scheme has been invaluable to us as a rural school and the pupils have enjoyed and engaged well. Throughout the process online engagement has risen in some groups.Curriculum area leader for science
