At the nexus of learning and innovation

Roundtable Discussion "Exploring interdisciplinary knowledge and learning practices”


Interdisciplinarity SIG (the iSIG) brings together researchers, teachers, learning designers and other practitioners who have shared interests in interdisciplinary expertise, teaching and learning. Together, they explore how people develop interdisciplinary capabilities and how to facilitate interdisciplinary learning in diverse settings—from undergraduate courses to research teams.

If you are interested in interdisciplinary, knowledge, learning and teaching, the CRLI Interdisciplinarity SIG is inviting you to join a roundtable discussion.

    About the Roundtable:

    At The University of Sydney, the 2016-2020 University strategy will see all graduates developing the capability to work effectively in interdisciplinary and inter-professional settings. This imperative has resulted in a surge in the development of interdisciplinary ‘project-based’ units, and other kinds of interdisciplinary curricula. How can we facilitate the development of students’ interdisciplinary effectiveness most productively, right across the institution? Which research ideas and leading practices can inform the design of effective interdisciplinary curricula and teaching practice? How do we get the best approaches adopted, and minimise duplication and overlap?

    In this roundtable discussion, you are invited share your leading practices and research ideas to inform interdisciplinary teaching and design by sharing a short (3-minute) presentation - or just come along to expand your professional network and get inspired by others.

    This roundtable discussion opens a series of seminars-discussions “Exploring interdisciplinary knowledge and learning practices” that will run throughout Semester 2, 2018. It will be followed by at 3.30 by an expert panel discussion on “Unlocking the potential of interdisciplinary education”.

    You are very welcome to join us on July 4th at 1.30pm for an Interdisciplinarity Special Interest Group (SIG) roundtable discussion: “Exploring interdisciplinary knowledge and learning practices”. This event will be facilitated by Interdisciplinary Education Designer Beth Rohrlach at Charles Perkins Centre Curriculum & Research, CRLI Co-Director Lina Markauskaite, and Technology Innovation Manager Brian Bailey within Faculty of Art and Social Sciences Teaching and Learning.
