Abstract

Multidisciplinary learning plays an important role in the Finnish National Core Curriculum. We develop a project-based, multidisciplinary learning model for teacher training as part of our Checkpoint Leonardo Network program. We applied the Theory of Planned Behaviour to identify student teachers’ salient beliefs about multidisciplinary learning. Creative learning activities and the opportunity to study in different communities of learners turned out to be the most favourable, while differentiation the most negative components of the students’ attitude towards multidisciplinary education.
