Candace Timpte, Douglas Johnson, Lee Kurtz

This session is designed for professors who are considering interdisciplinary and collaborative efforts to engage their students, while developing critical thinking, collaboration, team building and communication skills. Using a recent experience where biology and leadership students worked together to research and analyze global and domestic water issues, we will share insights from the perspective of students via digital media and the involved professors, have an exemplar activity that represents the campus wide demonstrations, and conclude with a question and answer session.
