IAP is perfect for those of you looking to learn in a relaxed setting. This year, for example, you can find out about the MIT moderns: graphic design in the 1960s-1980s, beekeeping 101, or designing your life. You can learn leadership skills through feature films or join in a “fox” hunt.
IAP is the perfect blend of fun and learning. During IAP, you can learn how to contra dance (not sure just what this is? – sign up and join in the fun), oil paint, design games, or learn how to figure skate. If you are seeking personal or professional development, sign up for a writing workshop or learn how to give an effective presentation.
HR is offering a series of learning and development workshops for staff during MIT’s Independent Activities Period (IAP). The January Jumpstart IAP offering gives staff the chance to begin the New Year by sharpening knowledge and skills around communication, performance, and more.
IAP is a time to learn on your terms. From innovative educational experiments to learning science through cooking, there’s something for everyone.
