Sean Willems, Adrien Verdelhan, Nikolaos Trichakis, Andrew Lo, Miro Kazakoff, Joseph Doyle, Kristin Forbes, and Arathi Mehrotra have each won a 2021 Teaching with Digital Technology Award from MIT for their work teaching on campus and/or remotely. These student-nominated awards recognize faculty and instructors who have used digital technology to improve teaching and learning for MIT students. This recognition also gives the MIT community the opportunity to learn from their innovative practices.
The awards are co-sponsored by MIT Open Learning and the Office of the Vice Chancellor. This year students submitted a total of 230 nominations for 104 faculty and instructors, and 23 winners (35% from MIT Sloan) were selected by Dean for Digital Learning Krishna Rajagopal and Vice Chancellor Ian Waitz, in partnership with a panel of MIT students.
