Leerdoelen Students who participated in this interactive course are able to:
- appraise what other disciplines can add to environmental psychology and vice versa
- communicate the role of (environmental) psychology in promoting a sustainable society to diverse disciplines and audiences
- formulate links between theoretical frameworks from different disciplines
- use and integrate theories from psychology and insights form other disciplines in an interdisciplinary project
- recognize the factors that can hamper and strengthen success of multi- and interdisciplinary projects, and apply tools to benefit from these
Omschrijving Environmental challenges are complex and require expertise from multiple disciplines. Social scientists, humanities scholars, physical scientists, and engineers need to collaborate in order to understand and tackle these major challenges. Consequently, there is growing interest in interdisciplinary environmental research that integrates insights from various disciplines. In this interactive course, you will become familiar with how different disciplines study environmental problems, and their main contributions. You will communicate with scholars outside the field of environmental psychology, and in groups develop an integrative research idea. In the process, you will learn tools to better work in interdisciplinary teams.
