This session will explore best-practice models for embedding interdisciplinary collaboration into the UG student experience. Key challenges, levers/mechanisms and institutional barriers will be discussed and debated. The Innovation and Creative Exchange Project will be presented as a blueprint for innovation in pedagogy. This project provided an exchange for industry and businesses to present challenges, and an opportunity for student to develop professional networks beyond their discipline. By drawing on specific examples of interdisciplinary student collaborative industry challenges implemented in the last 2 years at the University of Huddersfield, the value to student learning, employability and professional development is ascertained.
