As usual practice, the program will conduct a Practicum study tour every January involving MIT and UTM Postgraduate students. The Practicum is used to formulate research questions or agenda that the MIT UTM MSCP scholar will adapt and work on their own for four to five months while based in UTM. The Practicum and Research output also emphasized questions likely to produce “actionable findings” relevant across the developing world. Open Lecture is a platform for the Scholars to share their research and initial findings UTM and local communities before they move to MIT and embark on the second phase of their contract finalizing academic paper and teaching videos.
