From Bowers Writers House
Jesse Waters, Bowers Writers House director
Brought together 13 disciplines to teach "Cultivating an inner narrative: WWI, an Exploration"
Business leaders note recent graduates' weaknesses in creativity and critical thinking, yet those abilities are imperative in the workplace when connecting with people from different backgrounds, learning disciplines,cultures and nationalities. Interdisciplinary learning—connecting similar or dissimilar subjects—readies graduates for the workplace by broadening their immediate scope of knowledge. With this concept and the 100th anniversary of World War I in mind, Jesse Waters gathered professors from across campus to guest lecture on the war, each bringing discipline-specific views. “I have always been a big believer that a liberal arts education should be interdisciplinary. Even as a student, I saw connections in different subjects to other classes.”
