In this session Joanne will share the structure, approach and facilitation practices for a course that is “on” now. She reflects about her teaching thus far and on the students and their struggles and insights, and questions whether the class as a whole is coming to a transformed understanding about knowing and the topic at hand. This presentation of a particular course’s design and how it is lived by instructor and students sets a context for inviting thought about “transformative inquiry,” “transdisciplinary research,” and “integral learning” and how these might express themselves in course design generally. The intention is to open a way to mutually explore what we instructors understand about these concepts and to consider how they might inform teaching and learning at CIIS.
