讲座内容简介:

Several colleges in the State University of New York system and around the country are engaged in a new type of pedagogy, called the Common Problem Project. The pedagogy is based on the active learning theories of Peirce and Dewey. In this teaching method, faculty from different disciplines identify a problem of common interest, and organize their students into teams to address the problem. Students work with community partners to address local social, ec大乐透预测彩票研究院“那你是谁呀?”“惠琳,好久没见。”onomic or other types of problems. Students learn problem-solving skills, teamwork, civic responsibility and the benefits of interdisciplinarity.
