Following the Yellow Brick Road: Interdisciplinary Practices in the Land of Oz
Long, Janette; Moran, Wendy; Harris, Joanne
Issues in Integrative Studies, n28 p28-68 2010
This article explores the history and development of interdisciplinarity within the Australian context. Conditions and circumstances for the emergence of interdisciplinary approaches are explored with discussion identifying how these approaches impact and shape national curriculum, teachers' practice and pedagogy. Policies, proposals, and debate are continuing to call for interdisciplinary practices that make the curricula relevant, significant and focused on the needs of all Australians for the present and in the future. Examples of interdisciplinary practices provide an overview of how interdisciplinarity is embedded within school structures and education discourse across Australia.
