Co-Teaching Residencies in Singapore

The Collaboration Office seeks faculty on a rolling basis to participate in one-month and two-month residencies at SUTD. Visiting MIT professors work with a faculty member from SUTD to enhance an SUTD course in a variety of ways. First and foremost, they co-teach, spending 5-6 hours per week in the classroom throughout the residency. They may also conduct special workshops or seminars, work to enhance the course curriculum, and mentor the SUTD faculty member. The Collaboration Office provides generous compensation and travel allowance for these residencies. Interested MIT faculty should visit the program page for more information or contact our office.
