Multidisciplinary Teaching

Susan Roll and Jennifer Wilking share their experience teaching a multidisipilnary course together on episode 341 of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast.

Quotes from the episode

-Jennifer Wilking

Students have such a deeper understanding when they’re actually doing the research rather than just hearing about research methods.
-Jennifer Wilking

Once they have an experience and actually talk to a person who is experiencing homelessness, all of those preconceptions start to drop away; and that’s the beauty of doing research too.
-Jennifer Wilking
