Interdisciplinary Learning: Working Across Disciplines

University of Leeds via FutureLearn


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.

This course is designed for those preparing for a joint honours degree or an interdisciplinary degree at undergraduate or masters level.

It will also be useful for academic researchers undertaking research in new areas or professionals working on projects with people from different disciplines.

This course is part of the skills courses portfolio at the University of Leeds that is designed to improve students’ academic study skills.
