Importance of Multi-Disciplinary approach in Education

Did you know that the quote, “a jack of all trades is a master of none” is an incomplete quote and the popular phrase in fact is “a jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one!” it is indeed a compliment!

Multi Disciplinary Approach

Multi-disciplinary learning is all about giving rise to such learners that aim at being a jack of all trades. This approach focuses on a whole or comprehensive method to cover an idea or topic by integrating multiple knowledge domains. With multidisciplinary learning, a student gains an arsenal of skills as it crosses the boundaries of curriculum to enhance the scope and depth of learning. And this approach can be taught through both offline and online classes thus, making it easier to be achieved.    

Importance of Multidisciplinary Learning 

  • Education is a complex world with many styles, values and philosophies and it’s important to find out what system fits your learning style. And multidisciplinary helps you do just that.
  • Through this method, a student learns general skills like problem-solving, critical thinking, time-management, self-management, communication and writing, analysis and research methodologies, teamwork and much more.
  • The skills you learn here are easily transferable across work environments. And will be helpful in every domain.
  • It gives a holistic understanding of different perspectives.    
  • A student becomes able to compile and collaborate with people from across the spectrum which will help them function better in the professional world. 
  • It helps students understand the power of new ideas, and helps develop a pragmatic attitude
  • It develops a generation of continuous learners
  • Learning without boundaries helps create more relevant and contextual learners
  • A deeper understanding of subjects and concepts leads to informed future choices.

Its advantages and importance are such that make this approach a virtuous change. And thus, the National Education Policy (NEP) of 2020 has drafted guidelines under the UGC to convert existing higher education institutions into multidisciplinary ones as a step in the right direction.

Moreover, this is an approach that can easily be taught through e-platforms too. A good learning management software makes it possible for you to teach any skill and transfer any piece of knowledge.
