PEN presents D-Lab: Education!

20 Dec

We are very excited to announce that we are starting a new MIT class in collaboration with D-Lab.

Here is the course description:

Explores education in the international development context and how modern best practices can be applied to overcome challenges, such as limited resources, language barriers, large class sizes, and entrenched pedagogy. Through an overview of core teaching skills emphasizing experiential and project-based learning, provides the necessary background to nurture creativity in youth and develop interactive lessons around science, technology, engineering, and math. Students draft and deliver lessons, receive feedback from peers and mentors, and then practice teaching in local Boston-area schools.  Opportunity to teach abroad over summer.

Please spread the word to MIT/Harvard/Wellesley folks so that they register for the class! Undergraduates and graduate students welcome.
