Un-Disciplining Teaching and Learning: Inviting Multiple Perspectives in Higher Education

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

Overview

This year the theme for Teaching Development Day (TD Day) is “Un-Disciplining Teaching and Learning.”

This will be a day dedicated to understanding the ways in which all academic disciplines inform the theory and practice of teaching and learning. While academic disciplines turn inward when it comes to understanding content, we have much to learn from each other when it comes to teaching that content. 

TD Day will take place on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 and will bring together students, faculty, and other teaching staff from across disciplines to collaborate and build strong, inclusive communities of teaching and learning that transcend disciplinary boundaries at Queen’s.

PANEL | Un-Disciplining Teaching: Thinking Beyond Traditional Disciplinary Boundaries in Higher Education
Moderator: Jill Scott, Vice-Provost (Teaching and Learning)
Panelists: Catherine Donnelly, Rehabilitation Therapy; Claire Davies, Mechanical and Materials Engineering; Mark Hostetler, Global Development Studies; and Valerie Michaelson, Public Health Sciences/School of Religion

The world around us is becoming increasingly complex and it can be difficult to capture complexity by staying completely within traditional disciplinary boundaries. In order to meet the growing dynamic and diverse needs of university students, we need to collaborate at the disciplinary level and challenge our understanding by adopting multiple perspectives. This year's TD Day keynote will feature panelists who think critically about engaging multiple disciplines and perspective-taking in their teaching. Presentations will focus on the effects of alternative-perspective-taking on students’ learning and the instructors’ own ways of thinking and teaching. An opportunity for Q&A will result in a conversation that is sure to highlight the rich opportunity for interdisciplinary learning strategies and pedagogical approaches in today's classrooms.
