Project for Interdisciplinary Pedagogy (PIP)

Martha Groom - PIPThe Project of Interdisciplinary Pedagogy is currently and indefinitely on hiatus. 

For more than a decade (2006-2018), the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences ran the Project for Interdisciplinary Pedagogy (PIP).  PIP advanced the IAS mission by providing an opportunity for a diverse cohort of 4-6 University of Washington doctoral students to develop their teaching skills in the context of an integrative interdisciplinary program that spans the arts and sciences.  Project fellows worked closely with IAS faculty mentors and created teaching portfolios that include evidence of their hands-on experience with theories and practices of interdisciplinarity and interdisciplinary pedagogy.  Listed below are the PIP alumni and their mentors.
