INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR EXAMPLES OF INTER-DISCIPLINARY ART-SCIENCE-ENGINEERING-HUMANITIES CURRICULA
Leonardo Executive Editor Roger Malina and UT Dallas doctoral student Kathryn Evans are interested in examples of courses and curricula that are in the art-science-humanities field such as courses on art and biology, music and mathematics, art and chemistry, dance and environmental sciences, etc.
Our current compendium of art science courses is available at:
The resulting updated compendium of courses will be included in a SEAD White Paper (Breaking Down the Silos: Curriculum Development as a Tool for Crossing Disciplines in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities) that is being developed in response to the international call for SEAD White Papers issued by the network for Science Engineering Art and Design
The White Paper is being developed with an international advisory group consisting of Paul Thomas (Australia), Edward Shanken (Netherlands), and Christo Doherty (South Africa). Other educators interested in collaborating to develop these resources should contact Kathryn Evans firstname.lastname@example.org .
We are interested in the broad range of all forms of the performing arts, including music, dance, theatre and film, and the visual arts; and connecting to all the hard and social sciences. We are including art and new technologies (eg: nano tech) but in general not new media curricula unless they include an art-science component, or art and engineering.
Individuals who have taught an art-science-humanities course at the university or secondary-school level, in formal or informal settings, are invited to contact Kathryn Evans, with details of their curriculum, at email@example.com. Please include permission to include your course on the Curriculum Development in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities (CDASH) website http://www.utdallas.edu/atec/cdash/, the level of the course (undergraduate vs. graduate), the course number and title, and the department(s) in which the course was offered.
This initiative is also part of the Art-Science Cloud Curriculum initiative led by Paul Thomas that will be discussed in a number of forthcoming Leonard Art and Education Forum workshops beginning in Copenhagen
