Interdisciplinary Learning: Working Across Disciplines
About CourseUniversity of Leeds
Harness the benefits of interdisciplinary study and work
Real life problems are too complex to be solved by a single field of study. That’s why learning to work across different disciplines is a vital skill in our modern society.
On this course, you’ll discover what interdisciplinary learning is and learn how different disciplines develop their own methodologies and language.
You’ll explore how disciplines create and value different types of knowledge, and discover strategies for working in an interdisciplinary environment.
You’ll also learn how to make the most of interdisciplinary work and collaborate effectively in your own areas of practice.
