Abstract

This article is based upon a recent interdisciplinary pedagogic research project – ‘Broad Vision: The Art & Science of Looking’ – which explored the perception and interpretation of microscopic worlds, whilst simultaneously investigating the potential benefits and challenges of working across disciplinary divides within a university. The authors reflect upon the different roles undertaken by students and lecturers (as researchers, facilitators and producers) and consider the innovative, democratic process of curriculum development that evolved during the project. The case study described is expected to be of interest to staff and students in Higher Education who would welcome the prospect of working within a ground-breaking educational model.
