The graduating class of Knowledge Integration students will be presenting "flash talks" about their senior research projects, followed by individual discussions at their poster displays. 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.
Join us on Saturday, March 19 from 9am to 1:30pm EST to learn more about the University of Waterloo!
Cultural learning, lifestyle politics, and opinion polarization in 'unprecedented times'
KIX (n): Knowledge Integration eXhibition; a convergence of disciplines, teaching methods and creative minds in an object-centric exhibition on topics related to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
The students in the Knowledge Integration program invite you to experience the culmination of our third-year design project: The Museum Course. Working in teams to produce these exhibits has been a rewarding and unique experience.
“So, what is Knowledge Integration, anyway?” All of us in KI have been asked some version of this question by family, friends, students in other programs, and/or potential employers. Given that KI is a unique, flexible, and multi-faceted degree, it can be challenging to succinctly explain it to others. Moreover, how we explain it may need to be modified to fit certain contexts.
We will practice a very valuable problem-solving skill: solvitur ambulando, which is a Latin phrase that means “it is solved by walking”.
Think of a problem (big or small) that you and/or your group have been working on. During the walk, discuss with people around you or go solo, and then see at the end of the walk if any fresh perspectives appear. It is amazing the work the brain is free to do when you are engaged in a physically repetitive and mentally undemanding activity such as walking (or knitting, or washing dishes, or shovelling snow!).
Join the KI community at our Friday afternoon seminars, where we'll learn together about knowledge integration in action!
