Our 2nd version of this Forum will focus on “Interdisciplinary teaching and its relevance for the modern workplace” with discussion around the following themes:
- How interdisciplinarity can help develop critical thinking skills and other so called “soft skills”.
- Why these skills are relevant in an increasingly technological workplace.
