Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning Workshop
Sponsored by the Center for Interdisciplinary Research, Collaboration, Learning, and Engagement, this workshop will provide tools for successful interdisciplinary teaching and practices that contribute to strong interdisciplinary course design, co-teaching collaboration, and meaningful student engagement.
We will draw from conceptual and theoretical models of interdisciplinary teaching and learning, discuss personal experience and effective practices, and provide worksheets to guide participants’ own projects. Participants will also have access to frameworks and scaffolding for thinking through interdisciplinary course design and collaboration.
We will be joined by a diverse panel of MSU educators who have designed and taught interdisciplinary courses for a dialogue about effective interdisciplinary co-teaching and course design, strategies to address potential challenges, and the benefits of co-teaching and interdisciplinary curricula. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their own interdisciplinary teaching philosophies and work on individualized plans for interdisciplinary teaching. Our goal is for both new and seasoned interdisciplinary educators to move their own practices forward, from classroom strategies to evaluation of interdisciplinary teaching effectiveness.
This workshop is suggested for anyone interested in applying for teaching and learning focused Interdisciplinary Seed Grants from CIRCLE.
