Teppo Jouttenus

edX Educator

Teppo Jouttenus is an edX program manager and helps faculty create both massive open online courses as well as on-campus offerings using the edX platform. Before joining edX, he finished a PhD in theoretical physics at MIT looking for the Higgs boson. Towards the end of his studies, he decided to change fields into physics education research which naturally led to working for edX. Online education blended with face-to-face activities is a way for him to put into practice many of the powerful lessons coming from research into how people learn.
