This workshop discussed the question: How do we support teachers to think about the nature of knowledge within and across disciplines in order to develop rich interdisciplinary learning experiences? Drawing from the work of Bernstein (2000) the workshop presentation explored the issue of how to circulate knowledge about IDL among schools and how to provide teachers with the time and space they need for planning. There is also a need for greater awareness and critique of recontextualising principles when knowledge moves from its site of production to be recontextualised in a different educational area. IDL provides opportunities for making knowledge connections and developing understanding but there is also potential for distortion of knowledge in the recontextualised site.
