EDS 607 Integrating Curricula and Learning through Discovery

3 hours; 3 credits. Development of an interdisciplinary and discovery-based conceptualization of teaching that allows the disciplines to be viewed outside their area of teaching. Theories of interdisciplinary teaching, discovery learning, and technology are examined as instrumental in building connections between the school disciplines. Students work across disciplines to create integrated curricula informed by relevant research in human development and learning. Technology will be used to facilitate the application of interdisciplinary curricula and discovery learning in specific community, school, classroom, and student contexts. A fieldwork component of 20 hours is included. Not open for students who have taken EDS 307 or its equivalent.
