Need some inspiration for interdisciplinary teaching and learning? Want to find ways to make your course more interdisciplinary, or locate potential collaborators across campus? Interested in team-teaching or creating integrated assignments? Check out notes and resources from this year’s CTLT Institute session Mixing It Up: Collaborating Across the Disciplines!
On May 30th, a team of ten facilitators with diverse disciplinary and teaching experiences led an interactive workshop on the benefits and challenges of interdisciplinarity in the classroom. Together facilitators and registrants shared best practices, lessons learned, and ideas in development. How can you engage in interdisciplinary teaching and enrich your students learning?
The CTLT Institute offers opportunities to network with other educators, share experiences and practice, and explore possibilities for teaching and learning. Check out some highlights for the thoughtful interdisciplinary practitioner:
- Who are our students? Explore student demographics, expectations, and experiences in this reflexive session
- How do students learn? Examine your teaching practice in relationship to research on learning processes
- Out There in the Wild, Woolly World Take your students beyond the limits of your discipline, and beyond the classroom walls!
- Team-Based Learning Get your students working together and with others through innovative and interactive (and interdisciplinary!) team projects
- UBC Wiki Power Users Panel Find out how the Wiki platform can be used in your classrooms and as a sharing space for teaching and learning resources (like our UBC Mix Community Portal!)
