Join us at Waterloo's Fall Open House!
Following up from the KI museum course field trip to Barcelona last spring, the third year students are giving conference-style poster presentations to the KI community based on their observations of exhibit design considerations from one or more museum exhibits they visited.
Transitions and Thresholds: An Integrative Approach to Understanding Learning
Confronting the limits of intuition with formalism
In Spring 2013, Bachelor of Knowledge Integration students capped off their second year with a field trip to Barcelona to study museums. Now they're sharing their reflections with the Knowledge Integration community.
Join us downtown Toronto at the Ontario Universities' Fair, 10am-5pm.
Find out more about Knowledge Integration and the University of Waterloo and speak to current students and professors. Look for the green shirts at the Waterloo booth!
Join the KI community at our Friday afternoon seminars, where we'll learn together about knowledge integration in action!
Think Tanks, Funding, and Politics of Policy Knowledge
Ed Jernigan, Director of the Centre for Knowledge Integration, speaks as part of the Waterloo Lecture Series hosted by the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus.
The Centre for Knowledge Integration is host to the Shad Valley program at the University of Waterloo. Many of our faculty and staff are involved, along with some KI students!
Shad Valley is a summer enrichment experience for high school students from across Canada.
Students who have received an Offer of Admission to Waterloo, and their families, are invited to join us on this special visit day.
Students will consider the perspectives of scientists, engineers, writers, philosophers, and others as they examine the theme.
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.
Check out their trip photos!
The graduating 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.
“Interdisciplinarity” what does it mean, and what makes it successful?
A Quest and a Question
Join us for a great day!
- Discuss your interests in KI with our students, faculty, and staff in the Knowledge Integration studio.
- Explore the Knowledge Integration eXhibition (KI-X), the culmination of the KI 3rd-year design project, The Museum Course.
- Tour residences and athletic facilities, attend a financing session, and learn about student services.
From engineering and the environment to science fiction and virtual reality, students will spend a week exploring the theme of design with a community of like-minded peers.
KI-X (n): Knowledge Integration eXhibition; a convergence of disciplines, teaching methods and creative minds in an exhibition of topical, object-centric displays.
