Bachelor of Arts & Science, Approaches to Knowledge, Autumn 2018

  • An exercise involving Wikibooks will feature in ‘Approaches to Knowledge’, a core first-year module for students on the Bachelor of Arts and Sciences (BASc) degree programme at UCL.
  • Students will work in small teams to write collaboratively a Wikibook chapter on an issue facing those conducting interdisciplinary work. The chapter will relate to one of the following abstract issues: disciplinary categories; evidence and the disciplines; truth and the disciplines; imperialism and the disciplining of knowledge. Students will be encouraged to explore how an abstract issue might play out in a real-world example of interdisciplinary work. Both the end product and the collaborative process will be assessed.
