Does Erasing Academic Borders Mean Improving Quality? Experiences from the integration of smaller courses in different disciplines into a 11/2 semester chemistry course
Paper in proceedings, 2003

Bringing together 5-6 courses from different disciplines means finding which subjects overlap and defining which material that will benefit from being taught in the context of one or more of the other disciplines. It creates problems and opportunities in assessment and may open up for new teaching methods. Course literature may be a problem as will the assessment of the outcome of the new course. In this communication I will describe the results of our work on the new integrated chemistry course (14 credits, Aug.-March coordinated with 15 credits of mathematics) for the chemical engineering, chemical engineering with physics and biotechnology programs and the implications for the "quality".
