MIT AFRICA EMPOWERING THE TEACHERS FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMME 2025/2026 FOR ENGINEERING PROFESSORS (FULLY FUNDED TO MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (MIT), USA)

Applications are now open for the MIT AFRICA EMPOWERING THE TEACHERS FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMME 2025/2026. The MIT-Empowering the Teachers Program (MIT-ETT) is a semester long fellowship accepting engineering professors who are currently teaching at local universities in Nigeria and who recently completed their Ph.D. 

Application Deadline: May 26, 2024.

The MIT-Empowering the Teachers (MIT-ETT) program provides an intense, semester long teaching-focused engagement for selected cohorts of faculty members (ETT Fellows) from African universities. By introducing the ETT Fellows to cutting edge student-focused teaching methodologies the ETT strives to foster innovation in science and engineering education in tertiary academic institutions in Africa.

MIT-ETT’s main objective is to support the growth of young African faculty leaders in science and engineering education, who will infuse the subjects with creativity and innovation. The MIT-ETT program has two main goals: first, to expose young African professors to innovative teaching techniques in the best engineering and science departments in the United States; and second, to give American faculty members who are deeply interested in fostering connections with their colleagues in emerging economies a practical way to get involved.

Program objectives for MIT AFRICA EMPOWERING THE TEACHERS FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMME 2025/2026.

  1. Expose junior African professors to MIT’s advanced, problem-solving pedagogical methods 
  2. Encourage the ETT fellows to become change-agents
  3. Allow the ETT fellows to expand their professional network, including MIT faculty with a deep interest in emerging economies.

During their semester at MIT, the ETT fellows: 

  • Observe at least 2 MIT courses in their own disciplines  
  • Take a curriculum design course and implement research-based instructional design principles in their courses
  • Discuss & explore curricular enrichment & reform through both formal and informal interaction with the MIT community
  • Participate in numerous activities to develop critical change-agent skills. These skills include entrepreneurship, effective communication, experiential learning, reflection, collaboration, systems thinking and perseverance.
