Interdisciplinary Pedagogy in STEM

In this workshop participants will adventure in the world of interdisciplinary pedagogies applied to the learning of STEM topics. They will explore how pedagogic practices that combine science education with artistic and sociological content and methodologies open up new avenues for working with students on relevant and global scientific themes, from water-related issues to history of science and genetics in society. The workshop will focus on the development and delivery of student-centred learning experiences that enable students to experiment with a ‘radical’ form of interdisciplinarity that encompasses the modes and knowledge of the humanities and sciences for achieving a global approach to complex scientific problems.

In a peer-informed and collaborative manner, participants will undertake a variety of interdisciplinary activities for investigating scientific topics that span from team-based to role-play and open-space learning sessions that embody the different inquisitive approaches of both the scientific and humanities disciplines. These activities will allow us to discover and experiment with the great potentialities of a holistic approach to science themes as well as to explore the creative and reflective nature of these practices.
