Description

The American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) has identified integrative thinking as one of its “Essential Learning Outcomes” in response to the large body of research indicating the importance of integrative thinking in facilitating learning. The challenge for higher education institutions is in designing curricula, courses, and other interventions that effectively facilitate this complex form of thinking. Drawing upon a range of evidence drawn from both faculty and students as a part of the campus’s assessment of the University of Massachusetts Amherst’s new Integrative Experience (IE) requirement, this session will work with participants to identify the commonalities in faculty and student perspectives about the importance of integrative thinking and how to promote it. In this session, participants will work together to identify promising strategies for facilitating integrative thinking across all of our campuses.
