Introduce your students to interdisciplinary problem-solving

Our interactive sessions encourage students to consider the value of interdisciplinarity, and how it can be applied to tackling real-world problems like sustainability and inequality. We explore how skills like contemporary art, systems thinking and data science can be used to tackle these problems, and are necessary within the working world.

Booking a session

You can chose either of the session formats below. We’re also happy to customise to suit your needs.

15-30 minute session

Content

During the session, the LIS facilitator will work with students to explore:

  • Interdisciplinarity – what it is and why it is important in today’s increasingly interconnected world
  • A demonstration of how interdisciplinarity can be used to tackle complex problems such as plastic pollution and inequality
  • An introduction and overview to the LIS BASc degree

Delivery: We’re able to run these sessions in-person or online on a platform of your choosing. This session format works particularly well as an assembly format.

45-60 minute session

Content

During this session, you can choose from either of the topics below:

  • How can we understand sustainability through an interdisciplinary lens
  • How does interdisciplinarity help us tackle inequality?

During the session, the LIS facilitator will work with students to explore:

  • The chosen topic using an interdisciplinary lens. Students will draw on the disciplines they’re studying across the sciences, arts, and humanities
  • The skills we might use to tackle the chosen problem and how these skills are relevant within the working world

Delivery: We’re able to run these sessions in-person. This session format works particularly well in a classroom setting.

Fantastic to have Dr Michael Englard visit to talk to some of our Sixth Form students. Problem-solving and interdisciplinary work is becoming ever-important in a rapidly changing world.
