Practitioners' Views on Interdisciplinary Studies at the College Level.
Fox, William M., Comp.; Stewart, Jefferson A., Comp.
The problems of instruction in interdisciplinary fields of college curricula are addressed in this guide, which is an outgrowth of a seminar. The observations on interdisciplinary studies apply both to programs of interdisciplinary studies as well as to individual interdisciplinary courses. The problems faced by the practitioner of interdisciplinary studies are also faced by all teachers regardless of field. The developmental process of general teaching methods is applied to the special problems of interdisciplinary studies in this guide. The following areas are addressed: definition of interdisciplinary studies, course and content selection for interdisciplinary studies, production and implementation of interdisciplinary courses and curricula, evaluation of interdisciplinary studies, and common problems with interdisciplinary teaching.
