Integrative Learning Pedagogy

The Carnegie Foundation President Lee Shulman discusses the relationship between integrity and integrative learning as explained below and on his video.

“Fostering students’ abilities to integrate learning–over time, across courses, and between academic, personal, and community life–is one of the most important goals and challenges of higher education. The undergraduate experience is often a fragmented landscape of general education, concentration, electives, co-curricular activities, and for many students “the real world” beyond campus. An emphasis on integrative learning can help undergraduates find ways to put the pieces together and develop habits of mind that will prepare them to make informed judgments in the conduct of personal, professional, and civic life” (From the ILP Summer Institute, July 2004.)
