Among the many challenges confronting the liberal arts today is a fundamental disconnect between the curricula that many institutions offer and the training that many students need. Discipline-specific models of teaching and learning can underprepare students for the kinds of interdisciplinary collaboration that employers now expect. Although aware of these expectations and the need for change, many small colleges and universities have struggled to translate interdisciplinarity into programs and curricula that better serve today's students.

Written by faculty engaged in the design and delivery of interdisciplinary courses, programs, and experiential learning opportunities in the small college setting, The Synergistic Classroom addresses the many ways faculty can leverage their institutions' small size and openness to pedagogical experimentation to overcome the challenges of limited institutional resources and enrollment concerns and better prepare students for life and work in the twenty-first century. Taken together, the contributions in this volume invite reflection on a variety of important issues that attend the work of small college faculty committed to expanding student learning across disciplinary boundaries.

Reviews

"Unique and excellently written, The Synergistic Classroom illuminates honest yet hopeful realities about the overlooked system of interdisciplinary teaching in educational institutions. This comprehensive volume provides successful methods of teaching that can easily be implemented to enhance interdisciplinary courses."  
"The Synergistic Classroom provides concrete examples of how to create interdisciplinary experiences that engage students in the curriculum, foster critical thinking, and support team work. This is a great exploration of the heart of professorship–to facilitate learning."
