94660 Designing for Transdisciplinary Learning: Principles and Practices

Requisite(s): 94659 Transdisciplinary Learning Experiences and Models


This subject provokes participants to investigate how collective learning environments can be designed to support the development of graduate capabilities needed to work in complex transdisciplinary projects. As a cohort, participants collaborate to develop design proposals for transdisciplinary initiatives to address (educational) problems or opportunities, potentially originating in different disciplines or fields of professional practice. In that creative design process, they identify and involve stakeholders in ways that promote agency and generate new possibilities. Participants also elicit those values and principles underpinning a range of transdisciplinary initiatives and distil design parameters to guide the development of their proposals, including key transdisciplinary practices. The subject culminates with presentations of these transdisciplinary education prototypes in an open seminar to gauge wider feedback and stakeholder interest with the intention of shaping subsequent development.
