Subjects in Interdisciplinary Learning & Teaching (SILT)
The research group “SILT” borrows from and adds to the Scholarship of Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning – “SoITL” – but also reflects on SoITL as a subject of research. This implies that interdisciplinarity is both practiced and studied-as both a buzzword and a practice. What can interdisciplinary teaching and learning bring to academic settings, students, and researchers today? What are the best practices of interdisciplinarity and what are their effects? How should the practices best look and why? How are practices of interdisciplinary teaching and learning entangled with (media) technological developments, and societal processes and challenges? The focus of the group is on interdisciplinarity as a complex theme in itself, a theme that is often mobilized for complexity. We study both students and teachers, and their situated relating.
