Report on Multidisciplinary Education in the UK

Ndnetwork_finalreport_1353

In 2006 the Design Council set up a Multi-disciplinary Design Network supported by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA). The aim was the facilitation of knowledge sharing and best practice across universities so as to improve curriculum design and impact.

The Multi-disciplinary Design Network has produced a report on best practice in multi-disciplinary education and its impact on the UK economy. The report describes the courses and centres that were created, with the aim of showing why enabling design and other students to experience multi-disciplinary teams and projects is vital for the UK economy. It also describes how multi-disciplinary design activity is being embedded in the UK’s Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).
