|F1 and MY1 Interdisciplinary Unit (IDU) 2013
On Monday 27th May, all F1 and MY1 students took time out from their regular lessons to participate in a 3-day ‘interdisciplinary’ event.
Interdisciplinary learning is at the core of the MYP programme. Life cannot be compartmentalized into specific subjects like Science, Maths, Music or Art. Real life and real jobs encompass a multitude of concepts and skills. ‘Interdisciplinary Units’ (or IDUs) are designed to integrate 2 or more subject areas to work together on a common theme or question. They serve to ensure students grow to become flexible, effective communicators, capable of solving problems in the modern global workplace that require a multidisciplinary approach.
