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

Working as educational developers, we daily advise diverse groups of faculty on “how to improve teaching andlearning in my subject”. In fact, specific ways of thinking and practicing within disciplines along with subject specific didactics,permeate most aspects of designing and realizing pedagogical development ventures at the university.This workshop builds on the notion that however skilled a scholar might be in her subject, the teaching of the very same subject is adifferent concern. On the one hand. On the other hand; who is better equipped to design learning activities, than those who are expertsin subject-thinking. Drawing on scholars of thinking and learning inside the disciplines in higher education, Joan Middendorf andDavid Pace (2004) developed the Decoding the Disciplines Model, suggested as a method for drawing on the skills of the expertise inhelping the students to learn their subject. Middendorf and Pace announces the method by stating; “Using the Decoding theDisciplines model, faculty who are deeply ingrained in their disciplinary research answer a series of questions to understand howstudents think and learn in their field. The cross-disciplinary nature of the process clarifies the thinking for eachdiscipline…”.Working the model thus is helpful in discerning disciplinary specific ways of thinking, as well as cross-disciplinarythinking skills. The potential of using the model will be discussed in the end of the workshop.
