Many foundation years teach across a wide range of subjects, encouraging students to think about their particular specialisms in an interdisciplinary way.  Doing this successfully, however, can be a challenge.  The contributions below consider the experience that colleagues across the UK have had when designing and teaching in an interdisciplinary, inclusive way.

We also invite colleagues to join us for a round-table discussion, focused on the resources above, that will be taking place on Wednesday 15th July, 15:00-16:30.  To join the conversation, colleagues must first join the Annual Conference Teams site, which you can do by signing up here:

Once you are a member of the Teams site, you can join the conversation taking place in the Interdisciplinarity and FY Teaching channel.
