PGA Interdisciplinary Pedagogy

Colourful abstract pattern

  • Are you currently teaching in an interdisciplinary 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 teaching 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 will run in a blended from October 2022 to July 2023 through monthly workshops on Teams on Wednesday afternoons, 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 2022-2023 are now open. The deadline for applications is Friday 9th September.
