Don't miss Raymond Kent's session at the Association for Theatre in Higher Education 2018 Annual Conference, August 1-5 in Boston. Raymond is a member of a panel titled Bursting At The Seams: How Designers and Technicians Can Grow An Interdisciplinary Curriculum on August 4 at 5 p.m. This panel will explore specific ways designers and technicians can plan, assemble, and fulfill new interdisciplinary approaches in their curriculum. Most design and technical classes come with a need for space, materials, and unique assessment methods; despite this apparent hurdle, design fields often cover broad topics that are appealing and enlightening for students from all disciplines, thus making them perfect for interdisciplinary instruction. This roundtable discussion will explore the wide variety of structures of interdisciplinary programs that cross over within the humanities as well as those that extend to the sciences and general education requirements. We will discuss how they can be instigated, funded, and how they factor into a department's and a University's broader curriculum and mission for the future of higher education. Panelists will offer examples of partnerships and courses with details on material and space allocations, as well as pertinent projects and research.
