What is MIT Global Teaching Labs in Wales?

The MIT Global Teaching Labs in Wales programme is a uniquely impactful and transformative programme, bringing expert STEM instructors from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to classrooms and staff rooms across Wales.
Supported by the Welsh Government, we work to enhance engagement with STEM subjects through project-based learning that explores real-world issues. We empower learners to strive to achieve their full potential in and beyond the classroom.

In 2022, 14 instructors from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) were due to travel to Wales to enhance STEM education in classrooms across Wales. However, due to the rapid developments of the Omicron variant, we decided to adapt the programme to online delivery in December 2021. In January 2022, 9 instructors from MIT and Yale-National University of Singapore (Yale-NUS) delivered live and recorded lessons, workshops and masterclasses.

The 2022 programme also saw the creation of the MIT Global Teaching Labs in Wales Online Learning Platform, Teachable, where 250+ hours of lessons, masterclasses, workshops, interdisciplinary projects and panel
discussions are now available for all schools and colleges across Wales to access.

In 2021, 18 instructors from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Yale-National University of Singapore (Yale-NUS) supported schools and colleges in delivering both live and pre-recorded lessons and workshops, and offering co-curricular, extra-curricular and super-curricular support. Additionally, recorded content has be collated and used to extend the longevity of the program and impact of learning from some of the world’s most talented STEM university students.
