2023 Conference

The promotion of interdisciplinary and individualized learning is not new. Individualized and interdisciplinary forms of learning trace their roots to the progressive educational movements of the early 20th century. In the past few decades, higher education has increasingly adopted some of the characteristics of this progressive educational tradition by promoting connections between classroom learning and the ‘real’ world, by recognizing the importance of mentoring, and by breaking down some disciplinary silos. More recently, the rising cost of higher education and the upheavals of the pandemic have reinforced student interest in making their education meaningful and relevant to their lives and career ambitions, a goal many IMPs heartily endorse. In this context, what distinguishes IMPs from other academic programs? How can IMPs best navigate institutions that remain organized around disciplines? What challenges do IMPs face when promoting the learning goals of their students?
