Facilitating Integration during the Interdisciplinary Research Process

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


The aim of this study is to see how tools can facilitate the complex process of
interdisciplinary integration. More specifically, we investigated how sharing
disciplinary insights can be facilitated by CoNavigator (Lindvig, Hillersdal and Earle, 2018), a physical interactive visual tool that encourages shared understanding. We compared sessions using CoNavigator with online sessions with use of a mind-map tool. We found that both CoNavigator and online mind-maps facilitated in-depth shared understanding, but students communicated more and showed more enthusiasm when working with CoNavigator. In addition, our research shows that it is important for teachers to act as a moderator to have students understand the connection between the session and their interdisciplinary integration.
