Virginia Tech will host an event on campus to highlight work underway related to the 4VA initiative. Sessions will focus on curriculum efforts that are advancing transdisciplinary opportunities to bring STEM and non-STEM students together for experiences that allow for development of complex thinking and hands-on problem solving. There will be highlights from faculty that are working across disciplinary boundaries on a curriculum to advance data driven decision making and they will discuss how this effort is unique in that it is being led by the College of Liberal Art and Human Sciences. Other sessions will focus on preparing STEM undergraduates for careers in complex decision making through a graduate certificate focused on policy and ethical implications of technical advancements. Faculty leading a K12 STEM pathway discussion across the state will discuss larger project goals and advancements made to date on this work. Additional sessions will focus on how to support faculty teaching in transdisciplinary contexts and how to facilitate university and department support for these practices.

This will be a great opportunity to connect with faculty across the VT community and with colleagues across the state who are working on similar transdisciplinary learning efforts. The event is open to the university community and interested faculty and administrators from participating 4VA institutions.
