Ask the Faculty

Real-time online interviews
December 20, 2011

Alumni can pose questions about timely topics to MIT faculty, and get their responses in real time, during a series of live online interviews offered eight times this academic year. Faculty Forum Online, a program of the MIT Alumni Association, hosts the half-hour webcasts. Alumni who register in advance can log in to watch the interview and submit questions. Selected questions are posed to the faculty member.

Go online now to watch past sessions—including the October interview, “The Real Solution Is Growth,” with economics professor Daron Acemoglu (at left)—and check for upcoming forums. The series is designed to address contemporary issues, so topics are chosen only a few weeks in advance. alum.mit.edu/learn/facultyforum/online.
