Interdisciplinary Panel: Liberal Arts Infused Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When students are worried about artificial intelligence taking over and that there are no jobs for liberal arts grads, it is easy to question the value of teaching and learning within the traditions of the humanities and social sciences. Yet an education infused with a liberal arts tradition has deep historical roots in educating innovators and creators – something that higher education today is being challenged to produce. A liberal arts education is where divergent thinking can be fostered and it is only through divergent thinking that students will be able to robot-proof their careers. This interdisciplinary panel will share the results of a year long project where faculty came together to talk and reflect on their practice, explore co-teaching, define experiential learning, discuss the application of teaching and learning strategies they cherish, and explore how best to ensure graduates are future ready while at the same time preserving disciplinary practices. The panel will begin by outlining a variety of projects they have engaged in over the year. They will share their reflections of coming together with intention to talk about teaching. And they will explore both the opportunities and tensions that surfaced as they attempted to engage in the scholarship of teaching and learning, as well as consider next-generation teaching strategies. Participants will be encouraged to share their own reflections and to ask questions. The aim of this session is to open a dialogue between interdisciplinary faculty, and teaching and learning educators around establishing a praxis that supports student learning in an age of disruption.
