SWIG projects promote integrative, collaborative learning across participating classes. Students from courses in different disciplines use technology to collaborate and exchange ideas, often asynchronously, while learning to recognize and apply different disciplinary lenses in their thinking. SWIG assignments move the classes from a teacher-centered to a student-centered space where peers are the audience for learning and dialogue.
