Modelling inter-disciplinary teaching and learning practices in pre-service education courses has produced powerful learning outcomes for graduate entry learners completing their Primary/Middle Bachelor of Education degree at the University of South Australia. The notion of connecting pedagogies, realised through an inter-disciplinary approach to teaching Society and Environment has provided rich contextual meaning for student-centred learning. The researchers were particularly concerned with the learning outcomes of this cohort, and their view of themselves as designers of curriculum.
