If you update featured content on this portal, make sure that you update Portal:Interdisciplinary Studies/Featured.


Placement of Division of Religious Studies[edit]

Isn't Religious Studies part of Humanities rather than interdisciplinary studies? Or if 'relgious studies' at wikiversity means studying religious from a sociological perspective, then it should be part of the Social Science faculty.

Wikistrings?[edit]

Would it be appropriate to have a department devoted to "strings of knowledge" like those explored in the series http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connections_%28TV_series%29? Users could create strings of already established wikipedia pages to create curriculum that encourages the exploration of knowledge. Wikiversity is unique in that a multitude of lessons are available immediately to the student... we should take advantage.

Such "Wikistrings" are fine. --JWSchmidt 21:39, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

New page format[edit]

Use Portal:Interdisciplinary Studiesnew to design a new version of Portal:Interdisciplinary Studies. My main goal was to include featured content and links to other Wikiversity content about Interdisciplinary Studies. --JWSchmidt 04:55, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

Department or Center?[edit]

In the Content development projects section there is a listing for Department of Wiki Science, but on that page itself it is referred to as a Center for Wiki Science. I think i prefer the term Center to department. It's more of a 'research' project really than a 'Department'. Does anyone have any issue with changing listing to Center?

Dignity Course[edit]

I am developing a Dignity course which may fit well here. If you like it, perhaps you can add it to the curriculum. (I hesitated to do this myself because I did not want to disturb the existing structure.)----Lbeaumont 16:04, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
