How an educator characterizes scientific domains and disciplinary relationships: A case of change
written by Deborah Hemingway, Vashti Sawtelle, and Chandra Turpen
In this project, we seek to understand how instructors scaffold and support students' interdisciplinary engagement in an Introductory Physics for the Life Sciences (IPLS) course developed at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) as part of a broader design research project.  Here we analyze how one educator positioned scientific disciplines in relation to one another over a two-year time span.  Our analysis of the educator's discourse in the classroom demonstrates shifts in the messages the educator sends about the domains of physics and biology.  In year one, physics and biology were largely described as distinct and different, but in year two they were more frequently described as similar, complementary, and overlapping.
