2023 Winter Forum launch: Across disciplines, across boundaries

2023 Winter Forum launch: Across disciplines, across boundaries EAIE Forum

The EAIE is excited to launch the Winter 2023 edition of Forum magazine on the theme of ‘Across disciplines, across boundaries’. Through a series of contributions from international higher education professionals, this edition of the EAIE’s member magazine looks at the ways in which interdisciplinary research and study align with international education.

Interdisciplinarity goes hand-in-hand with internationalisation. The work of international higher education is trending in a myriad of ways towards crossing boundaries, and not just in the familiar sense of traversing national borders. Indeed, there is a repeated call for the sector to facilitate innovative, boundary-spanning approaches to education and research to address the most urgent and complex challenges of our time. While this breaking down of the traditional boundaries and silos in higher education serves to unleash new creative and intellectual impulses, it also introduces a whole host of questions about how we manage such complex boundary-crossing initiatives and how we evaluate the quality and impact of this type of work.

With this edition of Forum – the exclusive EAIE member magazine – 15 authors representing perspectives from seven different countries around the world address these questions and others related to the many intersections of interdisciplinarity and internationalisation. From Alícia Orta-Ramirez and Lluís Costa Tutusaus’ article on interdisciplinary approaches to healthcare education, to Georgina Born’s assertion that “internationalisation and interdisciplinarity are intrinsically good bedfellows”, to Piet Van Hove and Simone Hackett’s insights on the different ‘cultures’ of the academic disciplines, the Winter 2023 edition of Forum offers a broad variety of perspectives on interdisciplinary research and study and their relationships to international education.

EAIE members will be receiving their print copy of Winter 2023 Forum in the coming weeks, and can enjoy full digital access via the Member Centre. Not a member yet?
