About the publication

Interdisciplinary education offensive

Challenges of a complex, volatile world require solutions that reconcile divergent perspectives and interests. In schools, interdisciplinarity has been part of curricula for decades, but as "interdisciplinary/cross-curricular" it is rarely applied as a collaborative practice.

Inter- and cross-disciplinary, transversal thinking are fundamental components of meaning creation in contemporary (university and school) education. The challenges presented by an increasingly complex and volatile world require solutions that reconcile divergent perspectives.

The journal EDU:TRANSVERSAL offers the possibility of bringing together research results from (inter-)national transversal epicenters.

Thus mapping the state of the art of interdisciplinarity to spark a transversal turn in education.

Communication between subjects is not enough. Without meaningful cooperation, opportunities to connect remain unused, and teachers and students do not benefit from the experience of lived interdisciplinarity.

  • State of the Art of Interdisciplinary Research in Subject Didactics.

  • With contributions by Christine Künzli David, Anna Maria Loffredo, Hans-Jörg Rheinberger and others.

  • The publication is part of the university’s book series “Edition Angewandte,” published by de Gruyter.
