INTERDISCIPLINARY CURRICULUM: WHAT IS IT AND WHY DO IT ?
Credit points: 15
In this subject we aim to provide primary education students with a firm grounding in the threshold knowledge required for teaching interdisciplinary learning. The focus is on student skill development in the key areas of what interdisciplinary education is, how has it been done in schools and education systems in the past and present, how could it be done now and in the future and why interdisciplinary learning matters. Students develop understandings about the theories and practice associated with learning, teaching and the creation and management of learning environments with specific emphasis on the teaching and assessment of interdisciplinary learning. The subject is structured around performance activities that enable students to make links between theoretical contexts and practical applications in teaching.
