Innovations in Interdisciplinary Teaching: (American Council on Education Oryx Press Series on Higher Education)
According to this book, interdisciplinary pedagogy is not synonymous with a single process, set of skills, method, or technique. Instead, it is concerned primarily with fostering in students a sense of self-authorship and a notion of knowledge that they can use to respond to complex questions, issues, or problems.
Most faculty members have disciplinary terminal degrees, little preparation for teaching, and previous experience learning and teaching solely in disciplinary classroom settings. This collection is designed to assist both new and experienced faculty members who are teaching in interdisciplinary settings and who want to advance integrative learning with their students, as well as administrators who want to encourage integrative and interdisciplinary teaching in their institutions. The contributors offer many intriguing approaches for achieving the goals of the interdisciplinary pedagogy.
