Session Description



The Project for Interdisciplinary Pedagogy: Insights After Three Years

Bruce Burgett, Martha Groom, and PIP Cohorts I, II, & III (Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, UW Bothell)

In 2006, the Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences program at UWB launched the Project for Interdisciplinary Pedagogy (PIP). PIP pairs 4-6 advanced graduate student fellows with faculty mentors to work together over the course of an academic year to discuss and experience the issues involved in creating and delivering interdisciplinary courses and curricula.

The members of each year's cohort work together as a learning community, meeting each quarter for discussion and workshops that demonstrate a variety of pedagogical techniques. In a series of posters, we describe some of the outcomes for the fellows, their mentors, and for UWB students, as well as some of the specific issues we have worked with across the three years of the program. Though designed as a mentoring project for doctoral students on interdisciplinary teaching and learning, PIP has evolved as a faculty development project for tenured and tenure-track professors as well.

The following posters present different aspects of the Project for Interdisciplinary Pedagogy:

  • Mentoring Graduate Fellows in UW Bothell's Project for Interdisciplinary Pedagogy - The Faculty Experience
  • Being a Fellow in UW Bothell's Project for Interdisciplinary Pedagogy - The Graduate Student Experience
  • Enriching the Undergraduate Curriculum through the UW Bothell's Project for Interdisciplinary Pedagogy - Courses and Collaborations

Posters by three PIP fellows will also be on display at the Symposium:
