The Fourth National Conference on Interdisciplinary Education (NIE) will take place on Friday, June 3rd, 2022, at University College Maastricht – Maastricht University. During this conference, teachers, researchers and students will come together to share experiences, practices, expertise, and ideas related to interdisciplinarity in higher education.
The theme of the fourth NIE conference will be Interdisciplinary Education as a Pathway to Global Citizenship.
Call for proposals
While the conference focuses on global citizenship skills, we also welcome contributions on other issues of interest to interdisciplinary educators, such as, for example, assessing interdisciplinarity, understanding the role of interdisciplinary education in reaching the sustainable development goals, or rethinking student – educator roles, and many more.
The conference will bring together educators from a wide range of interdisciplinary programs from across the Netherlands and Belgium. Anyone who has anything to share relating to these topics is welcome to submit a proposal to the organizing committee. Please submit a proposal for any of the following formats: a paper presentation, a workshop, a solution room (including questions), or something to exhibit such as posters, student work, artwork and the like. You can submit individually or in a group. Senior and early career academics as well as students and professionals from outside the academy may contribute.
