Courses from MIT’s 2016 Teaching with Digital Technology Awards Recipients

By Sarah Hansen, OCW Educator Project Manager

2016 marked the inaugural year of MIT’s Teaching with Digital Technology Awards. These awards, co-sponsored by the Office of Digital Learning, the Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Education, and the Office of the Dean for Graduate Education, are student-nominated awards for faculty and instructors who have effectively used digital technology to improve teaching and learning at MIT. The awards recognize the faculty for their teaching innovations and give the MIT community the opportunity to learn from their practices.

This year’s (first ever!) awardees are Lorna Gibson (materials science and engineering), Max Goldman & Robert Miller (electrical engineering and computer science), Chris Terman (electrical engineering and computer science), Peter Dourmashkin (physics), and Kurt Fendt (comparative media studies/writing).

OCW is honored to share courses and instructional insights from several of this year’s recipients.

  1. Can any of these courses be used to meet the IB program requirements where such a program is not available locally from the student’s IB high school?

    • OCW materials can certainly be used within a program of study towards IB or even AP certification. But you’ll need to discuss that with your individual school, OCW does not have any formal arrangements for this.
