PGA Interdisciplinary Pedagogy

Colourful abstract pattern
  • Are you currently working in an interdisciplinary teaching and learning context within higher education?
  • Would you like to develop your thinking and planning for cross-faculty teaching?
  • Are you passionate about the opportunities for inter/trans-disciplinary learning?

IATL is offering a small cohort of staff the chance to register for a Postgraduate Award in Interdisciplinary Pedagogy, which will be convened and assessed by IATL academic staff. Their expertise in engaging learners from all four faculties at Warwick will be shared during the programme, and the participants will have an opportunity to reflect upon, and evaluate, their own pedagogic practice. The course runs from October to July through monthly online workshops on MS Teams, supplemented by face-to-face meetings in person. The award is assessed via a portfolio of evidence and a practice-based presentation in the summer months.

Following an initial online application process, participants will be enrolled on a core 30 CATS module on ‘Interdisciplinary Teaching & Learning’, with the following aims:

  • Introduce interdisciplinarity at postgraduate level with a particular focus on good practice for facilitators (educators, practitioners, academics, researchers and administrators) of teaching and learning;
  • Approach higher education conceptually with a particular focus on practices of teaching and learning (seminars, workshops, events, online activity, policy-making);
  • Critically evaluate interdisciplinarity and its variants with a particular focus on multi-, inter-, trans- and non-disciplinary approaches as they relate to pedagogic practice.

Applications for 2023-2024 are now closed. We will be accepting applications for 2024-2025 beginning in July 2024.
