In advance of our Innovative teaching and learning practice from the LSE100 laboratory session on Thursday 12 November – an event designed for academic staff at LSE to share practice and stimulate discussion – this week’s resource focuses on the subject of interdisciplinarity. The value of interdisciplinarity as an approach to research and education has enjoyed increasing acknowledgement over recent years, yet at the same time there is a degree of uncertainty surrounding its definition and especially around the design and delivery of curricula which authentically embed interdisciplinary approaches to teaching and learning. In their paper Interdisciplinary higher education: Implications for teaching and learning (PDF), Martin Davies and Marcia Devlin from the University of Melbourne’s Centre for the Study of Higher Education explore the ideas of disciplinarity, multidisciplinarity, cross-disciplinarity and interdisciplinarity in higher education, with a particular focus on the challenges raised for teaching and learning.
