Connecting the dots with interdisciplinary learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Good curriculum design explicitly connects areas of knowledge as well helps student make their own connections. But it's easier said than done! This session explores a theoretical perspective on which to base the development of interdisciplinary study, considers practical issues in school-level implementation of interdisciplinary learning, and looks at ways to assess students' ability to construct meaning across academic disciplines.
The session goals:
• Survey the lexical field and contemporary scholarship on interdisciplinary learning
• Share learning stories from schools and classrooms that are exploring the challenges and opportunities offered by interdisciplinary approaches to curriculum development and implementation
• Inquire into the nature of effective assessment of interdisciplinary understanding
