Title: Transdisciplinarity-in-Action: Creating Interactive Learning Platforms and a Culture of Attraction in the Common Core@HKU

After a framing of Transdisciplinary Learning Platforms and Creating a Culture of Attraction in the Common Core@HKU, each of our speakers from different Areas of Inquiry will share brief examples of cross-faculty and cross-methodological projects, with a focus on design, difficulties, and best practices. We will wrap-up the session by engaging with all of the participants in a Q & A around clarifications, expansions, and possible innovations for the future.
