Think Outside the Box: Designing your Engaging Interdisciplinary Course

GEO & Local Events


Let’s think out of the box!


The new GE Programme will be implemented in AY2018/19 and colleagues may want to submit new course proposals for it. The success of any good course depends on the design of it. Interdisciplinary General Education (IGE) courses are no different. In this workshop, we will set the framework for an IGE course. IGE courses promise a wide range of desirable educational outcomes. The workshop will also focus on the process of designing IGE courses, which has the following eight steps: assembling an interdisciplinary team; selecting the topic; identifying disciplines; developing the subtexts; structuring the course; selecting readings; designing assignments and preparing the syllabus.


Come to join us and you will get some useful tips on how to start writing an IGE course proposal for the new GE Programme!
