Survey: Identifying Initiatives that Integrate Learning Across Fields of Study
The National Humanities Alliance (NHA) has undertaken a project to identify undergraduate curricular initiatives that bridge two or more distinct areas of study, such as those that combine approaches from environmental science and humanities, political science and engineering, philosophy and business, computer science and linguistics, etc. This five-minute survey invites you to tell us about successful efforts on your campus to foster collaboration among faculty from different areas of study to facilitate integrative educational experiences for undergraduates.
This survey effort is part of a broader project funded by the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations that supports the higher ed community in designing and implementing integrative learning initiatives and demonstrating the value of integrative approaches to a range of audiences. We have learned through our previous research that integrative curricula can be particularly effective in motivating students to study a wide range of disciplines during their undergraduate careers. We hope to identify people who are dedicated to this work and might be interested in joining a national community of practice committed to forwarding such efforts and documenting their impact.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email NHA Higher Education Research Manager Younger Oliver (email@example.com) or NHA Director of Undergraduate Initiatives Scott Muir (firstname.lastname@example.org).
