What this course about?
"Interdisciplinarity" is a genuinely fancy word academics like to use to demonstrate that they can pronounce a lot of syllables and read books from different sections of the library.
However, it is also a way to help adding cohesion to a class's learning experience by focusing on a common theme from several subject areas within several lessons.
Furthermore, interdisciplinarity (not even Microsoft Word thinks it's an actual word!) integrates topics and approaches that otherwise would not even cross each other. Besides, showing students connections between different areas that are usually siloed off, can help them develop their own skills in making creative links and provide a more accurate and engaging reflection of what real-life research—and real-life in general—can look like.
If you are a primary- or middle school teacher, you can still transform or modify your way of teaching and managing the students.
