Abstract

There is currently substantial interest within Higher Education in providing modules or courses that are interdisciplinary, or cross disciplinary boundaries in one way or another. A cross-disciplinary education may benefit both the student and the educator. Yet, developing such a cross-disciplinary offer is challenging when it requires collaboration between academics more familiar working within their own silos. Particularly so, when these colleagues are also dispersed across multiple sites. This article addresses this issue by offering a personal reflection on such an educational development at the University of Westminster.
