Exploring collaborative Inquiry As part of its ongoing commitment to increasing the prevalence of multi- disciplinary lea rning as an underlying principle of our ac ademic progra ms , the BAC will implement a new initiative c entered on collaborative learning, creating a program that would include both teaching c ollaboration, not merely cooperation, while evaluating the lea rning outcomes for both students and instructors. An importa nt primary goal for this program is to create a set of qualitative metrics demon strating the value added by employing a cross- disciplinary, col lab orative approach to de sign. Tangible outcome s will include the cre ation of innovative way s to identify collaboration, while demon strating the processes used to cre ate collaborative teams that achieve outstanding results. The program will also examine the pedagogi- cal future of collaborative learning and c ollaborative practice. The knowledge g ained will be integrated into the Foundation program at the BAC, but it will also be widely disseminated. mill center for the arts, brian healy architects pRacTIcE 61
