Student view

I recently had the opportunity to attend a session about interdisiciplinary pedagogy, which was very interesting and brought out some key and valid points about how academic staff approach interdisciplinary study. But, it highlighted to me how little we include our students in our research into what methods work, how they understand ‘interdisciplinarity’ and the challenges that they face. As we, as educators, work through our own practice, we musn’t forget that if we don’t communicate clearly what we are trying to achieve to our student audience, the message may be lost. This may seem obvious, but I feel our studies continually tend to take the ‘academic’ view, rather than the ‘student view’.
