Teaching and Learning

Engineering students

The Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT) is deeply committed to its mission: to catalyze innovation and excellence in learning and teaching at Harvard. Launched in 2011 by a generous gift from Gustave and Rita Hauser, HILT’s activities reinforce and interconnect the work of Harvard’s programs, centers, departments, and schools.

Overseen by the Office of the VPAL, HILT seeds, cultivates, and grows hundreds of local breakthroughs and experiments: our grants fund innovations by students, staff, and faculty; our events host teaching and learning communities throughout the University; and our Into Practice newsletters spotlight the imaginative pedagogy created by world-class educators at Harvard.
