Pedagogical resources essential to the educator include packages that explicitly define overall learning goals, more specific learning objectives, assessments to measure achievement of the objectives, and strategies to support learning of the objectives. This workshop aims to initiate the process of defining interdisciplinary learning goals and objectives by illustrating a) compilation of diverse educator perspectives regarding knowledge that should be assessed, b) reverse design creation of alignment tables of assessments, objectives and teaching strategies, and c) developing a network of educators committed to implementing pedagogical practices that both complement and transcend traditional institutional norms.
