In order to better support interdisciplinary teaching and research at Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs), a team at LMU will design and implement an interdisciplinary training model that enhances professional development for faculty and postdoctoral fellows, and enriches undergraduate science education. The program will specifically support: (1) training for postdoctoral fellows, focusing on their professional development as teacher-scholars in an interdisciplinary environment; (2) a series of collaborative workshops for postdocs and faculty, fostering interdisciplinary teaching and novel undergraduate research collaborations; and (3) the creation of a suite of collaboratively taught interdisciplinary courses that unite the natural sciences, engineering and mathematics.
