Global Teaching Labs attracts top students looking to share the Institute's unique approach to science and engineering education.

Through Global Teaching Labs, select MIT students are matched with foreign high school hosts for three weeks in January. At each location the students prepare tailored courses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects that complement the school's curriculum and highlight MIT's hands-on approach to education. Subjects taught, style of teaching and type of accommodation vary by country.

Timeline for 2017

Applications for the January 2017 program are due by September 25, 2016. Applicants need to submit their resume, their academic transcript, a letter of recommendation (ideally related to teaching) and a short essay. Selected students will be invited to interview shortly thereafter. Required materials and placement timelines vary by country.

For more information, attend the GTL INFO SESSION on Friday, September 16, 2016, 4:30 PM to 6 PM in the Vannevar Bush Room (10-105). 

Required training sessions

There will be approximately mandatory 5-6 training sessions. Exact dates will be determined in early to mid-fall.
