Our goal is to develop a sequence of neuroscience courses that changes our pedagogy and us by developing courses where the sciences learn from the humanities and the humanities learn from the sciences. We will do this by growing within and beyond our disciplines. We will engage in areas where we have an interest but no expertise, learn about these areas from both the perspective of the humanities and neuroscience, and teach innovative courses on these topics that crosses the humanities/science divide, radically change the classroom experience. To achieve this we are both going to change our teaching styles and expand our areas of intellectual understanding. We will use the method of simultaneous teaching which we developed in a previous course and add other innovations, including but not limited to 1) breaking the class in small groups once a week and have the students present orally brief summaries of their work in progress; 2) having humanities and science students work in pairs throughout, critiquing each other's work as they prepare their final product; 3) presenting their work beyond the classroom in a campus-wide forum. We will change the structure of the classroom from the traditional authority model to one in which debate and intellectual responsibility are central. For this we find that simultaneous team-teaching works extremely well. We are now ready to combine this approach with new innovations in our teaching that will have the effect of changing our pedagogy and intellectual reach. • A central goal of the course is to change the faculty participants so that their future teaching and scholarly endeavors reflect a more global view, which treats the humanities and sciences as partners. • A second goal is to support a student culture that takes a similar approach to the humanities and sciences, which we believe is in fact the liberal arts ideal.
