Crossroads: Integrating Interdisciplinary Research and Teaching in Graduate Education

By Bruce E. Kendall, PI

Crossroads was a multi-faceted interdisciplinary research-and-teaching experience for UC Santa Barbara doctoral students, encompassing scaffolded collaborative research projects and opportunities to translate research into the undergraduate classroom through curriculum development and closely mentored teaching. The program took its name from the multiple intersections involved: of disciplines; of research and teaching; and of faculty members, graduate students, and undergraduates. Crossroads projects involved collaborative studies with faculty and graduate fellows from multiple departments, pedagogical training, curriculum design possibilities, and closely mentored teaching experiences in the undergraduate classroom.
