Integral Methodologies: Transdisciplinarity-Plus
(Integral Methods)

DIFS-302. This 7 wk course (3 credits) explores Ken Wilber's Integral Methodological Pluralism (IMP) and other integral methodologies and their applications to research. In a rapidly globalizing world researchers and practitioners will need to be prepared to utilize different ways of knowing, and manage chaos, complexity, and hybrid forms of knowledge. It is time to enact the most powerful combinations of methodologies to our world change work. Transdisciplinarity will be the focus in comparison with multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches as well as how an IMP approach adds a dynamic "plus" to transdisciplinary approaches.
