About Us

MIT has recently announced and launched a substantial commitment to a new program in the science of learning and education, MITili.  This program responds to the urgent need to improve education for many students and the contributions that cognitive and social sciences can make towards improving education.  MIT has made many important but disparate contributions to education, but creation of the MITili aims to galvanize more and better achievements from MIT to have a greater impact on American and global education.  
MITili is a cross-disciplinary, Institute-wide initiative to (1) foster quantitative and rigorous research on how people learn, (2) combine research in cognitive psychology, neuroscience, economics, engineering, public policy, and other fields to investigate what methods and approaches to education work best for different people and subjects, and (3) improve learning and teaching from K-12 through college through continuing on-line education.
