  • Just think!Transdisciplinary consilienceconstructs learning across disciplines
    1
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
  • Constructivist learning & consilience
    Constructivism: Learners “build” worlds
    Constructivism: Teachers guide students
    Consilience: All use curiosity, abstraction, math
    Consilience: All understand each other, the world
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    2
  • Transdisciplinarity
    Creating inclusive worldviews
    Conceiving individuals’ views
    Sharing a perspective en groupe
    Overarching & pluri-generating
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    3

  • Consilience, transdisciplinarity, and…
    … divergent thinking
    sharing culturally-generated views
    using language, culture, math
    exploiting, e.g., “Humanities 2.0”
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning

  • Three integrated concepts & a result
    Transdisciplinarity
    Consilience
    Divergent thinking
    Result: Creativity!
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    5
  • Creativity: 8 qualities
    Fluency
    Flexibility
    Originality
    Elaboration
    Visualization
    Transformation
    Intuition
    Synthesis
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    6
  • Fluency
    A definition: Quick, smooth flow, flux
    Examples:
    In language, phonemic awareness
    In math, number sense
    A result: Unrestricted higher-order thought
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    7
  • Flexibility
    A definition: Ability to conceive the “other”
    Examples:
    In math, “adaptive strategy choice”
    In language, learning to reason like another
    A result: Cognitive plasticity
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    8
  • Originality
    A definition: Generation of novel ideas
    Examples:
    In engineering, new concepts
    In social science, creative problem-solving
    In language, poetry
    A result: Useful, practical outcomes
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    9
  • Elaboration
    A definition: Addition of detail
    Examples:
    In language, circumlocution
    In STEM, fine-tuning with details
    A result: Openness
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    10
  • Visualization
    A definition: Seeing with the mind’s eye
    Examples:
    In psychology, guided imagery
    In STEM, pattern, symmetry, order
    In language, painting word pictures
    A result: Shared imagination
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    11
  • Transformation
    A definition: Alteration retaining core meaning
    Examples:
    In language, questions or imperatives
    In chemistry, “off-label” applications
    A result: Improved neural plasticity
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    12
  • Intuition
    A definition: Recognizing connections
    Examples:
    In math, seeing things as figures
    In language, sensing the sociolinguistic
    A result: Effective creative thinking
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    13
  • Synthesis
    A definition: Creation of a coherent whole
    Examples:
    In science, chemical & biochemical reactions
    In academe, transdisciplinarity
    A result: “Self-directed” learning
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    14
  • Creativityqualities in Language
    Fluency: flow of sounds into patterns
    Flexibility: utterances fitting contexts
    Originality: the novelty of it all
    Elaboration: customization, explanation
    Visualization: picture-painting in words
    Transformation: synonymy
    Intuition: future, conditional expression
    Synthesis: summing-up, distillation
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    15
  • Transdisciplinary consilience everywhere
    Filling in the spaces between disciplines
    Examining in complementary ways
    Producing dynamic tension
    Jumping together
    KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
