This advanced course focuses on the theory and practice of constructing knowledge across the discipline to facilitate the integration of learning within a program approach perspective. Its principal objective is to enable participants to incorporate this ability in their teaching pratice.


Teachers will work in teams to critically review the pertinent scientific literature on the theory and practice of interdisciplinarity in education; to construct cross-disciplinary teaching, learning and assessment tasks around program curricular goals; and to model and evaluate these tasks. Many of the abilities learned in earlier courses will be consolidated in this pratice; working with the program approach and with competence-based education, the epistemology of constructivism, the psychology of learning, instructional strategies, discipline specific content knowledge and assessment as learning.
