Undisciplined: Creating Connections for Deeper Learning

August 8-11 | 9:00am-3:00pm | The Willows Community School

What is interdisciplinary learning? How can we help our learners connect their skills, abilities, and knowledge across disciplines? Though we teach as specialists, our students are generalists. Join us for a dynamic 4-Day workshop as we explore and practice interdisciplinary learning to create connections between your subject and others, helping all learners better transfer their skills, abilities, and knowledge.

We believe
To create deep, lasting learning, we must move our traditional subjects from strict boundaries to open borders, allowing students to transport their skills across disciplines.
