Educational technologies demonstrated

Faculty and others in the MIT community are invited to view faculty project demonstrations during the second MIT Ed Tech Fair from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Nov. 2 in Lobby 13 and the Bush Room. Faculty will be able to speak to their colleagues about ways they use technology to impact teaching and learning. Educational technology resources and services representatives will also be on hand to speak with faculty and provide demos. The event is sponsored by IS&T Academic Computing and the Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Education.

Open Enrollment

The Benefits Office would like to remind eligible members of the MIT community that the annual benefits open enrollment period will be held from Monday, Nov. 15 through Friday, Dec. 3.

Unlike in previous years, personal enrollment guides will not be sent to active employees in paper form. Instead, personal enrollment guides will be sent to all benefits-eligible employees through their MIT e-mail address. The online guide summarizes current benefit coverage and provides instructions for making benefits elections using employee self service. You will not need to do anything if you want to maintain your current level of coverage for 2005 unless you want to enroll in a Flexible Spending Account for next year. Employees who want to make changes will need to use employee self service on the web during the open enrollment period. For questions, send e-mail to openenroll2005@mit.edu or call the campus Benefits Office at 253-5100 or Lincoln Laboratory at (781) 981-7055.
