|Content||Participants will work in small, interdisciplinary groups on pre-selected topics of sustainability research. Typically, the topics will be linked to on-going research projects of the research groups supervising this course. The group work will mainly build on existing studies; the student groups will assess and link scientific literature from the different disciplines and combine these studies to a consistent interdisciplinary review on a given topic. The emphasis is thus on combining disciplinary approaches.
To this end, participants will get both a joint supervision focusing on how to combine disciplinary approaches and a group-specific supervision focusing on the topic set for the group.
|Learning objectives||Participants learn to work in an interdisciplinary group on a topic that is linked to sustainability research. They acquire practical knowledge regarding the interfaces between disciplines in sustainability research and methods for combining perspectives from different disciplines. In addition, participants expand their skills in team and project management.|
|Comments||Mandatory for all students of MSD 2017.
