Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching Conference: 'Interdisciplinarity: Learning from Each Other'


The 5th Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching Conference will take place on the 2nd of April 2020 at the University of Warwick.

It will explore a variety of issues in the theme of 'Interdisciplinarity: Learning from Each Other'

The University of Warwick is delighted to host the 5th annual Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning Conference (UK).

This year’s conference theme asks participants to consider the elements of collaboration, co-construction of knowledge and practice that underpin the interdisciplinary teaching and learning experiences of students and teachers. The diversity of contexts in which interdisciplinarity happens in Higher Education (e.g. liberal arts, joint honours degrees, single interdisciplinary modules, etc.) means this learning happens in a multitude of ways, and the conference will be an opportunity to share how these dynamics emerge within an interdisciplinary learning journey, inform our practices and generate impact in Higher Education.

We invite contributions from a diversity of interdisciplinary experiences and educational cultures, addressing different aspects of the conference theme. We warmly welcome contributions from early career academics, students and professionals who support interdisciplinary teaching and learning. We encourage joint proposals from teachers and students, particularly at an applied level.
