Workshop Description

The accumulation of knowledge that education at its best represents is not a matter of mindless memorization but of discipline-based thinking that transforms our vision and experience. To see the world historically, sociologically, anthropologically, geologically, biologically, chemically, mathematically--to see the world as a poet, dramatist, artist, economist---to apprehend the world from an Occidental, Oriental, Eastern, Middle-Eastern, Western point of view---is a crucial and essential part of appreciating the power of thought and knowledge.

No one can master all points of view, but the ability to enter, analyze, and evaluate a point of view in the contexts that demand such thinking is essential for everyone who would successfully deal with an increasingly complex world. In this think tank, we will focus on teaching students how to learn a discipline as a way of seeing the world.

Participants will:

1. create lessons and assignments requiring students to enter, analyze, and evaluate relevant points of view;

2. identify points of view that are essential to thinking in terms of the content of the course;

3. identify important connections among concepts within the domain of a discipline.
