Break MIT subjects into atomistic concepts that are linked across the entire institute--each concept might take a day or a week to master, but much shorter than a semester-long class. Students learn what they want to learn, and they can see how each concept builds upon others. Concepts can be linked to projects or goals so students see what knowledge areas are necessary. For example, a project might be to design and test an airfoil within certain constraints--what physics, mathematical, and aeronautical concepts are needed to do this?
Impact: less redundancy across subjects, more flexibility for students.
