"Models for Advancing Interdisciplinary Pedagogic Knowledge in Graduate Education" workhop

Please join us on Friday, April 13th for this Interdisciplinary Workshop!

Professors Colleen Tremonte and Constance Hunt from James Madison College at MSU will discuss the promises and challenges of interdisciplinary undergraduate teaching and learning within an institutional frame, the Interdisciplinary Inquiry and Teaching (IIT) Fellowship Program at Michigan State University. More specifically, the presenters will discuss how the scholarship of teaching and learning can promote a re-visioning of the linkages between interdisciplinary teaching and research - the pedagogic imagination.

This workshop is intended to be both informational and collaborative. Colleen and Connie will begin by discussing how graduate students are trained to teach undergraduate interdisciplinary courses. This dicussion will segue into a conversation about the challenges and promise of interdisciplinary teaching and learning. Workshop attendees are encouraged to join this conversation by sharing with the presenters and each other the challenges they face teaching interdisciplinary courses and the techniques that facilitate interdisciplinary understanding.
