Collaborative Thinking and Learning
The problem solving environment of Carnegie Mellon naturally leads to interdisciplinary teams being a common mode of working for our faculty and our students. Several of the courses are taught by faculty teams.
Faculty involved in teaching the global courses are now thinking intentionally as a group (Global Faculty Group) about what "globalizing" a subject area source means.
The collaborative culture pervades the Carnegie Mellon ethos and spills over to collaborations in extracurricular activities so that we see American students dancing the Indian Bhangra or Garba or students joining their Qatari and other international friends in doing a service project in Dubai.
