London Interdisciplinary School

London Interdisciplinary

School workshop

12/13

Various

At the London Interdisciplinary School, especially in light of everything that's happening with COVID-19, we think that students' understanding of tackling real-world problems and learning across the disciplines is more important than ever.

We realise that everything is different in terms of coming into schools, so we will be running a virtual session for students. In it we will be talking through and answering these key questions:

• What’s the value of learning across disciplines?

• How can it be applied to tackle real-world problems like COVID-19 or reducing plastic waste?

• Why is there a need for these skills in the modern world?

Workshop happens on the 23rd Sept

10am – 11am virtually

 

*If you have lessons, we can make arrangements for you to attend this workshop
