DOI: 10.4018/978-1-6684-7813-4.ch008
This chapter presents a model for designing and developing a globally-focused interdisciplinary STEM program in preservice teacher education. It provides an overview of a STEM program model that was developed to further strengthen the participants' skills and knowledge in STEM in a collaborative and experiential learning context. The model leverages the affordances of instructional technology while drawing on the learning to teach in community conceptual framework which facilitates learning through five core components: vision, understanding, disposition, practice, and tool. The program components align well with this framework as it emphasizes the competencies of the participants in developing a vision of empowerment in culturally relevant contexts. The opportunities and challenges of developing such a program are discussed. The chapter concludes with a model for establishing program goals and objectives and leveraging the affordances of technology to enhance student learning.

(more)SoftAssertions: A Progressive Paradigm for Urban Cultural Heritage, Interior Urbanism, and Contemporary Typologies
The assembly and collaboration of many disciplines on a shared project, with each discipline contributing material not only from their particular area of expertise, but rather a sort of collaboration with a much more broadly scope and interaction. Those in any particular discipline work collaboratively and intimately with others beyond their discipline, with the idea that one can, and the work can, transcend disciplines to create greater innovations and broader knowledge. Diversity is maximized. Typical defined edges, roles and responsibilities are mostly broken down.
