It's Alive! The Life Span of an Interdisciplinary Course in the Humanities
Drake, Tom; O'Rourke, Michael; Panttaja, Dean; Peterson, Ivan
Journal of General Education, v57 n4 p223-243 2008
After describing our interdisciplinary humanities course and its history, we identify challenges these courses face and strategies for keeping them vigorous. We argue that course longevity depends on effective translation of vision and content into explicit goals bridging the gaps between faculty members and between faculty and students. (Contains 2 tables, 2 figures and 8 notes.)
