Interdisciplinar Pedagogy: A Maritime Case Study

Abstract

As the challenges faced in today’s world are increasingly complex, a large number of specialised individuals now need to collaborate together to combine their expertise. Since the professional world is interdisciplinary, learning and teaching in higher education must adapt and consider the interdisciplinary approach, which is clearly encouraged in the United Kingdom by both the Higher Education Academy and the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills. Building on the known benefits of interdisciplinary education, an academic exchange between boatbuilding and yacht design students has been conducted to develop and support an interdisciplinary learning pedagogical model. Primarily focused on the maritime field, the proposed model has three bases, learning, reflection, and capabilities. Respectively supporting studies, bridging the skills gap and enhancing employability, these bases answer the contemporary demands from both students and the maritime industry.
