Integrated learning—the blending of knowledge that students gain in the classroom with that gained in all other courses, their personal lives, and their communities—can be used to improve higher education by mapping out strategies that will help transform traditional curricula into more flexible interdisciplinary programs, a report suggests.
The report—by the Stanford, Calif.-based Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Washington-based Association of American Colleges and Universities—was based on a three-year project in which 10 colleges from around the country tracked the progress of integrated learning over time and crafted proposals for the advancement of such learning.
