Faculty Collaboration for Integrative Learning
Session Time and Location
Integrative learning--connecting ideas and transferring learning to new and complex situations--is an essential learning outcome for undergraduates (AAC&U, 2007). It is also central to the high-impact practice of student learning communities, where faculty are challenged to move beyond their disciplinary perspectives to collaborate in creating interdisciplinary learning experiences. Educational developers can help faculty design these experiences by providing practical, targeted professional development opportunities. Participants in this interactive workshop will learn about and engage in one such activity that is designed to help faculty collaborate to promote integrative learning within learning communities.
