Disciplinary Knowledge: How to Teach Students Knowledge-Making in Your Discipline

Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at 3:00pm to 4:45pm

In university courses, learning is always situated within one or more disciplines. This workshop invites you to view your own discipline in ways that help you articulate and teach it to students. Collaborate to identify and communicate how people within your discipline operate: what kinds of questions are asked, what evidence or data are collected, how the evidence or data are interpreted, and how knowledge is represented. Work collaboratively to learn language, strategies, and activities that will be useful within specific classes and across departments. Please read “​How Experts Differ from Novices​” and “Communities of Practice​” prior to the session - you can find the readings in the​ ​Box folder​ for the workshops.
