The Impact of Interdisciplinary Activities on Departmental Disciplines

The Impact of Interdisciplinary Activities on Departmental Disciplines

(p.81) 8 The Impact of Interdisciplinary Activities on Departmental Disciplines

This section points at the rational and practical production of educational research, the relationship between graduate studies and research, and the impact of interdisciplinary inquiry on university-based projects, specifically in the departmental/disciplinary context. Instances of these illustrations are cited from the University of Minnesota's Microelectronic and Information Sciences Center. Differences between cross-disciplinary activities from disciplinary tasks include goals, limitations on topics, and stages of the process. Interestingly, the advantages of the former method offset those of the latter. Departmental production process is enhanced by interdisciplinary effects such as improved availability and accessibility of human and physical resources, detailed specification of problems, more interactive discourses, enhanced processes to achieve goals, and refinement of interpersonal relations not only with other researchers, but also with other industries or disciplines.
