Conference Topics

The main Topics of the conference are:

  • Interdisciplinary Practices in the Varied Contexts of Higher Education

How can teachers and students practically create a collaborative, student-centred, interdisciplinary learning environment from curriculum development to in-class and/or online delivery, to assessment, to student support? Examples of practice in any of these areas are welcome.

  • Interdisciplinary Experiences

What is the experience of interdisciplinary learning and teaching in the classrooms where you teach and/or learn? Why is it valuable for teachers and/or students? Reflective contributions are welcome.

  • Interdisciplinary Governance and Policies

How do we evaluate interdisciplinary learning and teaching? Can standard measurements be applied? If not, what do we do? How do we meaningfully advocate it at institutional and governmental levels?

  • Interdisciplinary Impacts

Why is an interdisciplinary, collaborative learning and teaching experience valuable for staff and students? What are the impacts on its participants? What are its outcomes?
