RECOMMENDED TRANSDISCIPLINE ELECTIVES Students who elect to take any of the units below will attend seminars in the first half of semester, focus on theoretical and thematic ideas (the curriculum), learning to process theoretical articles through précis- and essay-writing. Students then will devise a negotiated project, to be completed independently in the second half of the semester, marked by the appropriate academics. Flexible assessment for learning means that students might work within across disciplines, that is, either with a traditional discipline-based project, across disciplines, or even in collaboration with other students in a single discipline or transdisciplinally.
