Enhancing Transdisciplinary Dialogue in Curricula Development. Hammer, M. & Söderqvist, T. Ecological Economics, 38(1):1–5, July, 2001.
doi  abstract   bibtex   
A crucial step towards realizing transdisciplinary understanding is to address transdisciplinary issues in university curricula, and to train students in critically analyzing and understanding disciplinary metaphors. We present an experimental exercise at Stockholm University with the aim of finding a constructive way to introduce transdisciplinary elements in disciplinary courses and thus increase student awareness of disciplinary metaphors. The exercise required a minimum of formal university decision procedures and thus circumvented the institutional barriers that tend to obstruct the establishment of full transdisciplinary programs.
