Decoding the Disciplines – collaboratory exploring expertise.
Stockholm University, Faculty of Science, Department of Mathematics and Science Education.
2014 (Swedish)Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [sv]

This workshop builds on the notion that however skilled a scholar might be in hersubject, the teaching of the very same subject is a different concern. On the onehand. On the other hand; Who is better equipped to design learning activities, thanthose who are experts in subject-thinking. Drawing on scholars of thinking andlearning inside the disciplines in higher education, Joan Middendorf and David Pace(2004) developed the Decoding the Disciplines Model, suggested as a method fordrawing on the skills of the expertise in helping the students to learn their subject.Disciplines model, faculty who are deeply ingrained in their disciplinary researchanswer a series of questions to understand how students think and learn in their field.The cross-disciplinary nature of the process clarifies the thinking for eachof thinking, as well as cross-disciplinary thinking skills. The potential of using themodel will be discussed in the end of the workshop.The workshop sets out to work on three of the eight steps of the Middendorf-PaceDecoding the Disciplines-model, thereby affording an opportunity for theparticipants to discern, articulate, and compare their subject specific ways ofthinking and practicing in regards to a specific learning assignment.After the workshop, the participants will be on their way as regards to discerningand articulating their specific subject way of thinking and practicing, a knowledgewhich might be employed in order to design a learning task/activity that opens upthe subject for her/his students. In addition, the participant will be equipped with amethod for working cooperatively on identifying, discerning and articulatingdiscipline specific thinking . They will also be able to discern on the one hand subjectspecific ways of thinking as well as cross-disciplinary thinking skills on the otherhand.
