"Roving" Interdisciplinary Professors
Gross, Karen; Myrka, Anne
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n20 pA34 Jan 2009
In an effort to find a feasible way to provide quality interdisciplinary teaching on a small campus, Southern Vermont College has introduced a program called Roving Professors. The Rovers, a select group of professors, visit multiple classes across the college's five divisions, and each one integrates his or her specialty into each course visited, illustrating how subjects interrelate and how different disciplines are synergistic. Roving differs from team teaching in that it does not occur regularly within a single course over the semester, and the Rover is not a contributor to overall course planning or grading. The authors discuss how the program works and how it benefits both students and the institution.
