  • Are you interested in team-teaching, but unsure about how it could happen or with whom you might teach?
  • Have you envisioned running a seminar focused on a highly complex challenge that requires multiple disciplinary perspectives to understand?
  • Would you like to work on designing a course with faculty in other disciplines? Would you like to do (more) project-based learning?

If so, sign up for a networking event on April 17, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Centre for Teaching and Learning (Room FB-620 in the Faubourg Building, 1250 Guy St.).

What's it all about?
At this event, you’ll learn more about opportunities to develop multidisciplinary team-taught courses and meet potential collaborators.

This event intersects with the call for expressions of interest in multidisciplinary project-based courses issued through SHIFT.

Faculty who already responded to the SHIFT call are encouraged to participate in this initiative. In addition, faculty who have been part of recent discussions around STEAM — STEM plus arts and design — are encouraged to attend this event with other STEAM colleagues also interested in a potential wicked problem course offering.

Learn more about a wicked problem course.

What’s next?
Following this kick-off event, we will issue a call for proposals and organize a workshop series focused on designing effective wicked problem courses.

Short-term funding for wicked problem courses is being provided through the Strategic Directions fund, the SHIFT social innovation initiative, and potentially through a private gift.

Our intent is to find ways to make these courses financially sustainable in order to be offered regularly to our students.
