|Workshop Name||Graduate attributes series: Interdisciplinary teaching and learning|
|About Workshop||We need interdisciplinary teaching and learning to prepare students to deal with the various important but complex problems, phenomena and concepts that resist understanding or resolution when approached from single disciplines. Climate change and world poverty are clear examples, but equally, a full understanding of identity, public health, human rights, or knowledge can only be constructed by applying multiple perspectives and ways of thinking. But how do we teach our students to take an interdisciplinary perspective on these important problems, phenomenon and concepts? We know how to teach within a discipline, but how do we teach across and between disciplines?
In this workshop we will discuss materials and strategies to support the successful design, organisation, teaching, and evaluation of interdisciplinary subjects.
|Who Should Attend||It is suitable for any teacher currently teaching an interdisciplinary course, or who aims to develop one in the future.|
