MIT Faculty Co-Teaching Residencies at SUTD

The MIT-SUTD Collaboration office seeks faculty to participate in co-teaching residences at the Singapore University of Technology and Design for fall and spring terms in 2014, 2015 and 2016. During these month-long residencies, the MIT faculty will teach and interact with SUTD students and faculty. Two options are available, subject to department approval:

Option 1
  • Two one-month residencies during one MIT fall or spring term
  • Compensation for the department for lost teaching time is available for up to the entire MIT term
  • Faculty will receive additional compensation for the time they participate in the program at SUTD
  • Generous travel allowances, including funding available for significant other to accompany the faculty member to Singapore

Option 2
  • A single one-month residency in the fall, spring or summer term
  • Faculty will receive additional compensation for the time they participate in the program at SUTD
  • Generous travel allowances


The co-teaching program is an important aspect of MIT's commitment to develop SUTD's undergraduate curriculum and train its faculty. MIT professors are expected to spend five to six hours each week teaching classes in their areas of expertise. Although not required, they are also encouraged to meet and work with SUTD faculty members and students through social activities, mentoring, seminars, and other activities.

“Co-teaching introductory mechanics at SUTD in the summer of 2012 was a fantastic experience for me. Most importantly, the students were fabulous. The SUTD physics faculty are really dedicated to teaching and great to interact with. The SUTD classrooms were designed for interaction, and that adds enormously to the pedagogical value of the course.”
