CONVERGENCE PROGRAM WITH LITERATURE, ART AND BIOLOGY IN SCIENCE GIFTED EDUCATION: A CASE STUDY

K.I. Kang, Y.M. Kim

Korea Science Academy of KAIST (KOREA, REPUBLIC OF)
This case study aims to design and implement the latest educational research, convergence and integrated education. The study focuses to foster creative and synthetic thinking through the LAB (Literature, Art and Biology) program where literature, art and biology converge, combined with laboratory works for science gifted students. A collaborative research program, the LAB project was developed and has been applied in three consecutive years at Korea Science Academy of KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology). The program designs a course where biology research combined with artistic and literary work explores selected themes: concept visualization, molecular structure, biomimicry, identity and design with humanism. The course involves scientific inquiry with practice, independent surveys on art and literature, visualization of knowledge, hands-on experiments for related biological topics, and adaptation of research results in the form of useful and meaningful materials in real life. The LAB program results in broadening the scope of research methods and topics, widening creative and synthetic thinking, and raising awareness of benefits from collaborating in various academic fields. The study discusses systematic ways to design the model of convergence education with multi-disciplinary approaches.
