Register now: Interdisciplinary Education Programme

A university such as UU, one with a broad disciplinary focus, is ideally suited for interdisciplinary education. It is precisely in high-quality interdisciplinary education, that disciplines — both established and more recent — take centre stage. Disciplines and interdisciplinarity complement one another—interdisciplinarity questioning the tendency of the disciplines to specialise, whilst the disciplines ensure interdisciplinary answers are not only more encompassing, but also based on thorough research.

Universities such as UU are often still structured along disciplinary lines, thus interdisciplinary education comes with its own specific questions and challenges. Such challenges also bear upon the competencies, skills, and attitudes of its often disciplinarily trained teachers.  

This programme offers didactic tools and a broad network of colleagues for teachers who are or want to get involved in interdisciplinary education in various contexts (disciplines, types of education, levels of education, etc.).  

The programme is supervised by Rianne van Lambalgen (Liberal Arts and Sciences), Esther Slot and Elma Zijderveld (Educational Consultancy and Training) and consists of five meetings:

  • Thursday 12 October 2023 - 16h00 until Friday 13 October 2023 16h00
