Students who have received an Offer of Admission to Waterloo, and their family, are invited to join us on this special visit day.
The field trip kicks off the Museum Course, where Knowledge Integration students practise interdisciplinary collaboration by designing original, working museum exhibits. They start by studying museums in a museum-rich city, and they finish with an exhibition of their own work in March of their third year.
Knowledge Integration Symposium
The inaugural class of Knowledge Integration students will be presenting poster displays of their senior research projects. Forming the capstone of their four-year undergraduate career, these projects represent an exciting synthesis of the diverse disciplines the students have explored through this one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary program.
Meet us at the Knowledge Integration table in the Faculty of Environment Academic Fair, and tours to the KI-X: Learn in 3D Museum Exhibits will leave from there.
The students of the Berlin cohort in Waterloo's Bachelor of Knowledge Integration program invite you to experience “KI-X 2012: Capstone Design Project”, the culmination of their third-year project: The Museum Course. Since second year, they have been immersed in museums and the particular nature of the museum learning experience. Creating a museum exhibit is an interdisciplinary challenge in which rigorous research and design combine with team work to produce a unique experiential learning opportunity.
KI students host the 2012 Combining Two Cultures Conference, an interdisciplinary student-led conference to improve interdisciplinary education through collaboration.
