Presentazione del volume
The Decoding the Disciplines methodology was created by academics at Indiana University (IU), Bloomington, USA, aiming to implement teachers' metacognitive processes and encourage them to reflect on their practices, uncover their knowledge construction and promote learners' understanding of the disciplines. From 2016 to 2019, within the framework of Erasmus+ Programme KA201 the partner Institutions VIVES University of Applied Sciences, Kortrijk, Belgium; National University of Ireland, Galway, Ireland; Università degli Studi Roma Tre, Roma, Italy; The Ethnic Kitchen (NGO), Vilnius, Lithuania; Vytautas Magnus University, Kaunas, Lithuania led the Project Decoding the Disciplines in European Institutions of Higher Education: Intercultural and Interdisciplinary Approach to Teaching and Learning.
This Scholarly E-Journal presents diverse experiences, critical thinking and results of the Decoding the Disciplines application and it will serve as a great resource for higher education institutions and individuals. It provides an opportunity to approach major issues through the lens of diverse academic disciplines in the areas of Education Sciences, Humanities, Multicultural and Interdisciplinary Studies, Natural Sciences. Further documents on the application of the methodology are also available on the Open Educational Resources (OER) website http://www.decoding.education/.
The Editorial Team invites colleagues to re-engage in discussions on empirical research, praxis and theoretical considerations in a world characterized by multiple realities of intercultural and interdisciplinary knowledge. In this context challenges and difficult decisions are fundamental to improving our teaching and learning profession in Higher Education.
