STEM conference 2019: Synoptic assessment of Life Sciences at Brunel University London: Ensuring interdisciplinary education by empowering Level 4 students to read primary research papers that span disciplines

Interdisciplinary study is vital to push fields forward and accelerate discovery. In the Life Sciences BSc at Brunel students draw together elements of teaching from five different academic programmes (Psychology Biomedical Environmental Sports and Computer Sciences) to design their own interdisciplinary degree. To ensure a truly interdisciplinary education there is synoptic study and assessment in every year of the programme. This session will describe the synoptic study at level 4 where students are using team-based learning to develop strategies to read a series of academic journal articles to appreciate the interdisciplinary nature of the study of life sciences.
