Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching: Frameworks and Practice
The Open University, Milton Keynes, U.K
Thursday 6 April 2017 10.00 - 16.30

Following on from a successful event in 2016, the Open University will be hosting another one-day event to share frameworks, projects and experience through which interdisciplinary learning and teaching can be approached within Higher Education (HE). The conference focus is on the emerging practices of interdisciplinary learning and teaching and how theoretical pedagogical frameworks might enhance and further develop interdisciplinary learning and teaching practice for foundation level students, undergraduates and taught-postgraduates. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Potential theoretical and pedagogical frameworks for interdisciplinary learning at foundation and HE level.
- Sharing of practice and experience in providing and promoting interdisciplinary learning opportunities.
- The impact of interdisciplinary study on learning experiences.
- Interdisciplinary learning within the curriculum and in extra-curricular, non credit-bearing activities.
- The resource implications of interdisciplinary learning, support and provision.
