Inspiration meeting Interdisciplinary education

Tuesday 11 June 2024, 2:45 pm - 5:30 pm
Boundary-crossing and wicked problems, with Marieke Veltman

This afternoon, the Teaching and Learning Centre launches a practical tool for teachers to (further) develop interdisciplinary teaching. Marit Rensink will explain the tool. You will receive a copy after the session.

The teacher tool is based on 2 articles by our guest Marieke Veltman (Windesheim/UvA University of Applied Sciences). We will discuss with Marieke her PhD research on 'boundary-crossing' and student learning aimed at taking issues with 'wicked' aspects further. Marieke shares concrete tools for teachers' actions that are quickly translatable to our teaching practice. Both hands-on and evidence-informed!
