Developing interdisciplinary training

Project description

In several domains, such as for example Speech pathology and audiology, researchers and professionals need to collaborate across disciplines. In order to develop comprehensive multidisciplinary training it is necessary to understand how learners from different disciplines interact to construct knowledge. The process of online interdisciplinary interactions among learners and teachers needs to be investigated, as well as the challenges in online interdisciplinary interactions. Depending on the current state of the research and the interest of the student a sub topic within larger (European) project will be defined.  

The project is available in the Fall and Spring semester and is also open for recently graduated undergraduate students and for graduate students.

Number of places available: 1 per semester.
