Seeding transdisciplinary culture: Lessons from the Digital Child Centre transdisciplinary workshops
A Digital Child Working Paper from our Methods and Methodologies series
This paper describes a workshop process that aimed to explore transdisciplinary approaches to digital childhoods and produces recommendations drawn from these experiences.
It emphasises the importance of recognising not only the differences between academic disciplines, and between academic and non-academic disciplines, but also the more foundational distinctions between Western and Indigenous knowledge systems. It also builds on existing work that highlights the importance of interpersonal dynamics to successful transdisciplinary engagement and draws attention to the generative possibilities of engaging with specific theorisations of transdisciplinarity.
Our aim is for these records and recommendations to benefit the Digital Child Centre in its continuing efforts to develop a transdisciplinary culture as well as other research groups and organisations that might be engaging with the challenges of fostering meaningful transdisciplinarity.
