This paper reports a study on self-reported learning experiences of 250 students (from 5th to 8th graders), 25 teachers and 23 teacher students when implementing an interdisciplinary learning module promoting inquiry-based learning and multiliteracy skills. The qualitative data were analyzed using data-driven and theory-informed content analysis. The findings indicate that the participants saw benefits to integration including team working, communication and multiliteracy skills. However, also the challenges relating to these skills and learning material were reported by teachers and teacher students. Based on the findings, the pedagogy of interdisciplinary learning should be developed in both pre- and in-service teacher education to enhance the expertise of teachers.
