article description
Excerpt: In my own past public school teaching experiences, interdisciplinary learning, thematic instruction, and inquiry approaches all provided ways for students to mesh ideas across disciplines and sign systems with a complex gelling of ideas and knowledge building. Taking these ideas another step further, Integrative Learning: Mapping the Terrain offers detailed suggestions for how integrated knowledge building could look in the college or university setting. Mary Taylor Huber and Pat Hutchings are scholars at The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. In this work, they offer a plausible and viable argument for college and university faculties who believe integrative learning is an important consideration for the complex curricular changes higher education faces in the coming century.
