14.30 - 17.00 How Can Transdisciplinarity Enrich Undergraduate Learning?

This is a workshop designed to engage faculty, staff and other interested parties in transdisciplinary thinking. It will also highlight some of the challenges of and findings from our recent co-curricular module with undergraduate students from different disciplines.
Curriculum integration in its purest form requires a paradigm shift. Such a shift cannot be accepted without both theory and evidence (through application) being presented effectively. The move from subject-based teaching to one of integration requires a framework of understanding and practical guidance.

Faculty are being asked more and more to function in a multidisciplinary environment. They cannot be expected to intuitively understand integration and must have a strong understanding of the theoretical underpinnings and ‘buy in’ to the theory of integration in order to advance their students’ engagement. This workshop can be the first step toward helping faculty make these shifts and provides them with the opportunity to explore the broad scope of curriculum integration in both their teaching and research. This workshop is designed to foster an open, creative and collaborative spirit in problem-solving, while exposing faculty to cross-curricular approaches.
