Following on from a successful event at the University of Sheffield in 2016, The Open University (OU) hosted a one-day event to share frameworks, projects and experience through which interdisciplinary learning and teaching can be approached within Higher Education (HE). The conference focus was on the emerging practices of interdisciplinary learning and teaching and how theoretical pedagogical frameworks might enhance and further develop interdisciplinary learning and teaching practice for foundation level students, undergraduates and taught-postgraduates.
