Cross-Pollinating Ideas: Figuring Out Your ID Course


As part of the college’s commitment to multidisciplinary and because Interdisciplinary courses are required for students enrolled in B.A/S programs—the Interdisciplinary Committee is hosting a Spring workshop: “Cross-Pollinating Ideas: Figuring Out Your ID Course.”

Join Us! Monday, April 24th, 10am-12pm in Faculty Commons, N227

Benefits to teaching an interdisciplinary course include collaboration, student enrollment to fulfill degree requirements, scholarship, teaching improvement, and enrichment of complex topics.

Bring in your questions and ideas! Whether you are new or have experience with interdisciplinary education, you will benefit from learning about the application process; how to transform an existing course into an Interdisciplinary one; and tips on drafting a successful ID course proposal. We will share the best practices on making your ID course a success!

Light refreshments will be provided.

CUNY Office of Research sponsors University-wide Interdisciplinary Research Grant competition

All tenure-track faculty are invited to apply to this collaborative grant program.  For this year, the program focuses on questions/problems related to urban populations and the urban environment.  We are very interested in proposals that cross disciplines in a very broad sense, from the natural sciences, data sciences, social sciences and the humanities.

Attend this workshop and see how you can make one of our existing special topics courses your own.
