Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies
Recent research in educational practice has identified and emphasized the value of connecting school curriculum to the personal experiences of the students; but to be effective, learners must possess a collection of baseline experiences the teacher can connect new learnings to. If the baseline experiences are lacking, the instructor could choose to create a classroom experience upon which to build additional learnings.
