Why do we need interdisciplinary learning in schools?

In September 2021, the London Interdisciplinary School (LIS) opened its doors to a founding cohort of 65 students, offering an interdisciplinary undergraduate degree spanning beyond the siloed nature of traditional higher education. Our curriculum — the first of its kind in the UK — enables students to study related concepts and theories from multiple disciplines. This innovative way of learning gives students an opportunity to explore multiple disciplinary perspectives in order to understand and tackle complex problems.

Joining the team at LIS was as exciting as it was nerve-wracking. Through all the various different roles I’d had before, this was something truly new and unique and I really didn’t know what to expect.

My goal from the very start has been to build a SXP program which is drastically different from what other UK Universities offer. London being one of the most vibrant cities, we’ve had the unique opportunity to bring the real-world problems the students cover to life. From tours to Q&As, offsites and volunteering opportunities. I wanted to craft a program that went beyond just having fun, to also complementing and enhancing the students’ academic learning while helping build a tight-knit community.

So we created something called the LIS Network: a growing group of organisations who want to use interdisciplinarity to make change. These organisations span the public, private, and third sectors. In other words, we work with people from government, business, and charities, to make sense of complexity and find opportunity within.
