Everyday Experiences: Tools for Making Multidisciplinary Connections
Why do I need to learn this? When will I use this in my life? These questions are only two of the many students may ask about their learning. Although we know the relevancy, often times the connections are lost by our students. Even if we tell them why they need to know math, science, history, or whichever subject that you teach, students are often still unconvinced. This course will provide you with strategies for overcoming this challenge by helping you create more meaningful, real-world, multidisciplinary connections for your students, or more so how to help your students make the connections themselves! Strategies will focus on implementation of project-based learning, inquiry-based approaches, STEAM pedagogy, reflective practices, and usage of collaborative protocols as the primary tools for making connections in the everyday student experience.
