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

This workshop builds on the notion that however skilled a scholar might be in her subject, the teaching of the very same subject is a different concern. On the one hand. On the other hand; Who is better equipped to design learning activities, than those who are experts in subject-thinking. Drawing on scholars of thinking and learning inside the disciplines in higher education, Joan Middendorf and David Pace(2004) developed the Decoding the Disciplines Model, suggested as a method for drawing on the skills of the expertise in helping the students to learn their subject. Disciplines model, faculty who are deeply ingrained in their disciplinary research answer 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 each of thinking, as well as cross-disciplinary thinking skills. The potential of using the model will be discussed in the end of the workshop. The workshop sets out to work on three of the eight steps of the Middendorf-Pace Decoding the Disciplines-model, thereby affording an opportunity for the participants to discern, articulate, and compare their subject specific ways of thinking and practicing in regards to a specific learning assignment. After the workshop, the participants will be on their way as regards to discerning and articulating their specific subject way of thinking and practicing, a knowledge which might be employed in order to design a learning task/activity that opens up the subject for her/his students. In addition, the participant will be equipped with a method for working cooperatively on identifying, discerning and articulating discipline specific thinking. They will also be able to discern on the one hand subject specific ways of thinking as well as cross-disciplinary thinking skills on the other hand.
