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


Deadline for proposals:  Monday, June 18, 2018


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.

Possible topics within the theme of multi-disciplinarity include but are not limited to:

  • Teaching or TAing courses that include students from multiple disciplines
  • Bringing different disciplinary perspectives to the scholarship of teaching and learning
  • Critical thinking and other academic skills that transcend disciplines
  • Building diverse learning communities in the classroom
  • Bringing universal assessment strategies to multiple disciplines
  • Teaching beyond the role of the disciplinary "expert" and opening up to new learning opportunities
  • Incorporating interdisciplinary models and multiple perspectives in teaching
  • Supporting multi-disciplinary teams
