An important component of Modeling Interdisciplinary Inquiry is the opportunity to apply and test the program’s intellectual concerns in the undergraduate classroom — and in a way that promises the possibility of wide benefit to the entire teaching effort of the College of Arts & Sciences.
Modeling Interdisciplinary Inquiry provides a flexible circumstance for teaching that enables postdoctoral fellows to develop a teaching dossier and to do so according to their interests and expertise. Over the course of two years, fellows teach three undergraduate courses ranging from Freshman Seminars to mid-level and advanced undergraduate courses. Advanced courses are housed within traditional departments and cross-listed with other departments and programs in ways that make clear their interdisciplinary nature.
One of these three courses will include our Theory and Methods Seminar for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students. Our fellows have also developed a diverse series of Freshman Seminars.
