Global Teaching Lab
GTL canceled for 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic
As part of the MIT - Germany program with the University of Stuttgart, students of STEM subjects have the opportunity to apply for a short stay at MIT in order to get to know the research landscape at MIT and to establish contacts. This is based on the prerequisite that Global Teaching Lab participants will be supported by MIT in the preparation of lessons and that they will occasionally observe and teach lessons.
