Diagnosing Interdisciplinarity Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Interdisciplinarity is accepted as a key strategy of many contemporary creative arts institutions, relevant to both its educational and research agendas. It enables multiple benefits: including enriching the student experience and their real-world problem solving abilities; allowing for more complex research outcomes; and promoting wider impact of research / practice beyond the academy. However clarity around the goals desired from interdisciplinary learning, and consequently the models adopted, is variable. This paper will explore a range of interdisciplinary models in order to develop a diagnostic tool' for considering, through a case study, whether the teaching and assessment modes employed relate to the outcomes desired from interdisciplinary learning
