Osborne, J and Dibben, M, Over the edge of the wild: Lessons of discovery through developing transdisciplinary (breadth) units in blended courses, Journal of Open, Flexible and Distance Learning, 21, (1) pp. 25-34. ISSN 1179-7673 (2017) [Refereed Article]
The initiative, which commenced in 2013, uncovered challenges in administrative and academic systems that might have been predictable, but were often surprisingly intractable. Administrative systems have had to adapt to university study moving out of faculty silos. One-year-on reviews of units following their introduction capture the delivery experience (from lecturer and student perspectives) and provide vital feedback on learning design for quality improvement. Teaching teams now confront how best to sustain the blended approach as enrolment numbers increase.
This paper raises some of the issues to be tackled and suggests indicators for the success of this initiative.
