The Integration of the Humanities and Arts with Sciences, Engineering and Medicine in Higher Education: Branches of the Same Tree - March 18

Includes a Live Event on 03/18/2019 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

"The Integration of the Humanities and Arts with Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Higher Education: Branches from the Same Tree" is the topic of the fifth webinar in the 2018 National Academies report series. The report elaborates on benefits of the proposed integrative model of learning, which bridges the knowledge, modes of inquiry, and pedagogies from these multiple disciplines within the context of a single course or program of study.

Join Study Director Ashley Bear, PhD, as she examines the key findings and recommendations of the report, focusing on the implementation of integrative curricula and how faculty, administrators, and accrediting bodies can explore, identify, and mitigate constraints that hinder integrative efforts in higher education. This webinar will also feature examples of institutional implementation of this recommendation.

Webinar participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their experiences with the presenters and with each other throughout the presentation.
