Abstract

"Few inquiries have investigated master's students in education as they learn about transdisciplinarity" (Richards, in press). Transdisciplinatiry is descriptive of collaborative research and problem solving that crosses both disciplinary boundaries and sectors of society" (Repko, 2008, p. 15).


This is a true story about how I introduced the concept of transdisciplinarity to a group of graduate education majors. The graduate education majors tutored at a summer literacy camp as part of their field experience requirements for a capstone literacy course.
