Cases on Interdisciplinary Research Trends in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics: Studies on Urban Classrooms. Advances in Educational Technologies and Instructional Design
Lansiquot, Reneta D.
Involving two or more academic subjects, interdisciplinary studies aim to blend together broad perspectives, knowledge, skills, and epistemology in an educational setting. By focusing on topics or questions too broad for a single discipline to cover, these studies strive to draw connections between seemingly different fields. Cases on Interdisciplinary Research Trends in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics: Studies on Urban Classrooms presents research and information on implementing and sustaining interdisciplinary studies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics for students and classrooms in an urban setting. This collection of research acts as a guide for researchers and professionals interested in improving learning outcomes for their students. Contents include: (1) Interdisciplinary Learning from a Student's Perspective (Marlene Hidalgo); (2) STEM Academic Enrichment and Professional Development Programs for K-12 Urban Students and Teachers (Cecelia Wright Brown and Kevin A. Peters); (3) STEM Learning Communities: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Teaching and Learning (Bernadette Kelley and Lisa McClelland); (4) Reengineering an Introductory Computer Education Course for Undergraduate Students (Farhat J. Lakhavani and April Rupp); (5) Communication, Culture, and Technology: Learning Strategies for the Unteachable (Ray Gallon); (6) Using Second Life to Support Student Teachers' Socio-Reflective Practice: A Mixed-Method Analysis (Melissa Burgess); (7) Virtual Interdisciplinary Experiences for Teachers of Writing: Considerations for Implementation (Christine Rosalia and Laura Baecher); (8) Energizing Interdisciplinarity: Addressing Army Energy Use through Curricular Reform at West Point (Bruce Keith); (9) Integrated Projects and the Development of Interdisciplinary Problem-Solving Strategies (Paul C. King); (10) Enhancing Diversity in STEM Interdisciplinary Learning (Reginald A. Blake and Janet Liou-Mark); (11) Development of Interdisciplinary Problem-Solving Strategies through Games and Computer Simulations (Candido Cabo and Reneta D. Lansiquot); (12) Integration of Civic Engagement of Pedagogies in the STEM Disciplines (Gwen Cohen Brown and Laina Karthikeyan); and (13) All Hands on Deck: Using Case Studies to Support Institutional Change (Cinda P. Scott, Bonne August, and Constanza Eggers-Pierola).
