International Journal of Higher Education, v4 n1 p86-91 2015
This study explored student learning and engagement in a novel cross-disciplinary education program, in particular whether medical students learning experiences can be enhanced through interaction and exchange of knowledge with students of varying disciplines. The program, entitled AnaRtomy, studies the historical relationship between art and anatomy. A cohort of medical, physiotherapy and fine arts students from Monash University, Australia completed the three week AnaRtomy program in Italy. The benefits of cross-disciplinary learning were substantial as students from different courses learned from each other and gained new perspectives into art and anatomy. The AnaRtomy program supports cross-disciplinary learning and successfully enhances student engagement and learning experiences giving students the opportunity to study abroad and learn through experience.
