Building a New Education Infrastructure to Support Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration

Building a New Education Infrastructure to Support Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration

Cross-disciplinary collaborations are most successful when individuals bring disciplinary and methodological expertise to teams where such expertise is leveraged to achieve the larger aims of the team. While it is neither necessary nor desirable for each team member to know each of the methods employed in the team, it is essential that team members can communicate about the results that emerge from different methods. To this end, SSRI-West is beginning to explore building a modular education infrastructure – combining on-line content with “flipped classroom” workshops – to teach social science methods in ways that enable non-experts to communicate with experts in interdisciplinary teams.
