Involving two or more academic subjects, interdisciplinary studies aim to blend together broad perspectives, knowledge, skills, and epistemology in an educational setting. By focusing on topics or questions too broad for a single discipline to cover, these studies strive to draw connections between seemingly different fields.
Cases on Interdisciplinary Research Trends in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics: Studies on Urban Classrooms presents research and information on implementing and sustaining interdisciplinary studies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics for students and classrooms in an urban setting. This collection of research acts as a guide for researchers and professionals interested in improving learning outcomes for their students.
Reviews and Testimonials
Contributors from a range of social and natural sciences explore practical theories for interdisciplinary teaching in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and modern education; and theories in practice at the City University of New York's College of Technology. Among the topics are interdisciplinary learning from a student's perspective, reengineering in introductory computer education course for undergraduate students, addressing Army energy use through curricular reform at West Point, developing interdisciplinary problem-solving strategies through games and computer simulations, and using case studies to support institutional change.
