Activity: Participating in or organising an event › Participation in workshop, seminar, course
This workshop sought to demonstrate, through firsthand experience, the potential benefits of cross-disciplinary pedagogy when planned, briefed and managed effectively. The organisers seek to ‘demystify’ the prospect of cross-disciplinary exercises, in an attempt to dispel prejudices about complexity, level of engagement, and application. Delegates learned skills in authoring and providing such activities, and gain confidence in their abilities to control the process, and the value of these experiences to the student.
The intention was to engage staff in a brief interdisciplinary activity themselves, directly demonstrating the student experience, before asking delegates to review their experience, in disciplinary groups, and measure this against the various criteria for learning we seek to meet in Higher Education.
