Integrating Opportunities: Applied Interdisciplinary Research in Undergraduate Geography and Geology Education
Viertel, David C.; Burns, Diane M.
Review of International Geographical Education Online, v2 n3 p347-358 Win 2012
Unique integrative learning approaches represent a fundamental opportunity for undergraduate students and faculty alike to combine interdisciplinary methods with applied spatial research. Geography and geoscience-related disciplines are particularly well-suited to adapt multiple methods within a holistic and reflective mentored research paradigm. The case study presented is successful geography-geology collaboration at a regional comprehensive university. Faculty participation allowed them to broaden the scope of their research and expand cooperative relationships within the academy, while students benefited from a wider context for disciplinary training, improved community engagement, and professional development opportunities.
