U.Lab is a course that blends education and movement-building to catalyze institutional and personal renewal and change.
U.Lab blends the more frequently used MOOC elements (lectures, videos, discussions, exercises) with additional features such as 75-minute live-streamed global classroom sessions.
Tomorrow is our third live session – and it will be unlike anything we’ve done before.
That’s because it intentionally coincides with our MITx U.Lab Prototype camp, which brings 60 participants from the January 2015 run of U.Lab to MIT, for a four-day residential action learning experience. Participants are coming from China, Nigeria, Brazil, Scotland, and many other places around the world. They represent some of the most interesting prototype initiatives that emerged from the first run of U.Lab.
During the live session, we will invite participants to present their work, thereby turning these prototype leaders into teachers for the current U.Lab participants, inspiring them with stories of personal and societal change.
For course teams interested in creative pedagogical approaches, universities interested in the evolving relationship between online and residential learning, or anyone looking for inspiring examples of social change, please join us on Thursday, October 29th and 10am EDT.
