Motivation in Interdisciplinary Programs.
Nuhfer, Edward B.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n78 p79-86 Sum 1999
In contrast with most academic departments, interdisciplinary programs lack automatic identity, clear space, or curricular territory, and motivation is closely linked to program success. This includes motivation of students in class and outside of class, of contributing faculty, of administrators, and of societal peer groups, such as professional associations, within the disciplines involved. The director's role is crucial. (MSE)
