Apply for a TLIG Grant
Teaching and Learning Innovation Grants (TLIG) aim to bring MIT CS educators together to tackle the problem of CS teacher licensing and teacher competencies – i.e. what are skills, concepts, dispositions that teachers need to have in relation to the licensure agency’s requirements? We also want to leverage MIT’s rich history and innovative takes on CS education by emphasizing the role of creativity, playfulness, artificial intelligence, and affective computing. We are seeking to find innovative models of CS education within the MIT community and investigate implications of those models on K-12 education, particularly for teacher education.
