Integrative learning concept map

Concept map describing activities offered by universities to encourage integrative learning.

Integrative learning is a learning theory describing a movement toward integrated lessons helping students make connections across curricula. This higher education concept is distinct from the elementary and high school "integrated curriculum" movement.

The "term comes in many varieties: connecting skills and knowledge from multiple sources and experiences; applying skills and practices in various settings; utilyzing diverse and even contradictory points of view; and, understanding issues and positions contextually."

"...making connections within a major, between fields, between curriculum, cocurriculum, or between academic knowledge and practice."
