Interdisciplinary Community of Practice: Strategies and Experiences with Interdisciplinary Teaching

Interdisciplinary CoP

1:15 pm - 3:15 pm
Irving K Barber Learning Centre, Dodson Room 302

Title: Strategies and Experiences with Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning - A Panel Hosted by the Interdisciplinary Community of Practice

There is no one correct way for teaching in an interdisciplinary context. What is more, interdisciplinarity presents particular challenges in teaching and learning. To address these dynamics the Interdisciplinary Community of Practice (ICoP) has organized this panel with faculty members and students from across campus to share their experiences (and models) of interdisciplinary teaching and learning.  Our hope is that this session will open up discussions on different ways of interdisciplinary teaching, and raise awareness of how participants might be able to navigate this specific kind of instruction. Each speaker will share their experiences and models for interdisciplinary teaching and learning, and  Q&A will follow.

Available Spaces: 38 / 50

Teaching and Learning for the Heart and Mind Community of Practice

Community of Practice

1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Irving K Barber Learning Centre, Fraser River Room (Room 2.27)

Teaching and learning requires critical reflections happening in moments of our engagement within day-to-day practice. How can we learn through our teaching and become practitioners who are also reflective learners? Dr. Bob Kull offers one such example through sharing his story of how certain teaching moments transformed him as a deep learner. Please join us in listening to Bob’s story, and engage with your fellow community members in critical and engaging discussions concerning self-awareness in teaching and learning.

Facilitators: Latika Raisinghani and Catherine Douglas
