From March 28-31, 2012 faculty and staff from MIT visited Haiti to present workshops on STAR (Software Tools for Academics and Researchers), TEAL (Technology Enhanced Active Learning) and Open Education to over fifty educators from Haitian universities and schools.
About the Workshops
The main goal of these workshops was to start implementing faculty- and curriculum-development activities based on MIT’s Open Education Resources such as OpenCourseWare and Software Tools for Academics and Researchers. How can these resources be most constructively used to improve STEM courses in Haiti? How can similar resources be designed in situ by educators in Haiti and become fully functional?
