OCW Educator: Instructor Insights

A sample of a This Course at MIT page.

This Course at MIT pages provide context for how the course materials published on OCW were used at MIT. The image above shows the This Course at MIT page for 22.033 Nuclear Systems Design Project.

Many MIT instructors share their teaching experiences, ideas, and approaches in a special section of their OCW courses, called “Instructor Insights.” In this section, you’ll find instructors discussing topics of interest to practicing teachers, such as course design, active learning, and engaging learners.

Instructors share these insights through the OCW Educator project, a faculty-inspired initiative designed to pull back the curtain on MIT teaching for their colleagues at the Institute and around the world.

You’ll find Instructor Insights within OCW course pages called “This Course at MIT.” These pages are structured like fact sheets and provide course-specific information to help you map the materials to your own curriculum. You’ll find information and infographics about:

  • course outcomes
  • pre-requisites
  • the classroom space
  • assessment practices
  • how student time was spent
  • how the instructor sequenced assignments and activities

Direct links to This Course at MIT pages with Instructor Insights are listed below. Some This Course at MIT pages do not contain Instructor Insights, but still offer valuable information for educators seeking to use OCW course materials in their classrooms. Links to these resources can be found at the bottom of this page.
