4th Annual Crossdisciplinary Consortium « Humanities Program

The Crossdisciplinary Consortium is a conference hosted by a collaboration
of University of Colorado at Boulder departments, programs, and student groups.
The Consortium is moderated by the CU Humanities Club, and is designed to
spotlight scholars from all academic institutions, at all levels, and in all
fields, including undergraduates, graduate students, junior faculty, full faculty,
and independent writers. The mission of the Consortium project is to bring together
thinkers in different areas of inquiry, with an emphasis especially on literature,
philosophy, classics & rhetoric, art & art history, visual culture & media, and
the social sciences (including questions of technology, economics, and global
contexts). We will accept original, interesting papers on any topic, in any field.
The papers in all panels accepted for the conference are also considered for
inclusion to be printed in the scholarly journal Consortium, published by CU’s
Umbrellagraph Press.

Cross-Disciplinary Curriculum

Cross-Disciplinary Curriculum | Cross-disciplinary scholarship | Scoop.it
In his article titled "Curricular Reform: Dilemmas and Promise," Ronald D. Anderson (1995) identified the positive and negative perspectives of the development of across-disciplinary curriculum. Based on an analysis of nine case studies, Anderson (1995) noted that a cross-disciplinary curriculum encompasses the integration of themes and subjects, a focus on primary concepts rather than details, the application of the learned concepts and the cultivation of critical thinking in all students (pp. 33-4).
From my point of view, Anderson (1995) highlighted key considerations that are important incurriculum development. First, in attempting to develop and implement a cross-disciplinary curriculum,classroom teachersconfront the dilemma of ensuring that important topics are covered and exploring the different topics in depth. Time constraints and resource limitations may prevent classroom teachers from achieving both objectives at the same time (p. 35).

Second, in the development of a cross-disciplinary curriculum, teachers must possess the ability and knowledge to integrate the topics based on their similarities in concepts and themes. Therefore, they will be able to design an appropriate curriculum that challenges students to apply their learning to interesting projects. Many teachers who have been trained solely in their respective disciplines have difficulties with creating this new type of curriculum (Anderson, 1995, p. 34).
