The Teaching Excellence Project highlights the extraordinary teaching and learning at MIT, documented by MIT Video Productions (MVP) over several decades. With generous support from Neil and Jane Pappalardo, MVP has digitized, preserved and now shares these inspiring videos.
Teaching excellence is not formulaic on campus. Rather, it originates in classrooms, laboratories, common spaces, residence halls, and along the great corridors of MIT. Within this site are a number of videos that showcase the experiential learning that is MIT.
A selection of courses are presented in their entirety in the Inspiring Teachers section. In class lectures and often through real-time demonstrations, faculty reveal the process of achieving fluency in the languages of their disciplines, while sharing unique perspectives on their own trajectories to discovery and excellence. Footage From the Vault, drawn from several MIT archives, showcases the culture of Institute life, work, and play through vintage films and special events spanning several generations of the MIT community. Must See! videos highlight favorite talks, lectures, and events from a variety of venues across the campus.
