This first of four core courses in ASU's Interdisciplinary Studies major is an introduction to the intellectual traditions of "interdisciplinarity." Because BIS 301 meets ASU's Undergraduate Graduation Requirement for upper-division Literacy and Critical Inquiry (L), this course takes rote memorization to the next level by asking you to understand and use interdisciplinary concepts. Thus, as the course unfolds, we use three tools to develop an active interdisciplinary identity and practice. First, because how we all were conditioned to read since elementary school is ineffective (Adesope et al., 2014) and inefficient, we use a basic narrative analysis (Clark, 2015) in place of "reading for comprehension." Second, because there is more to academic disciplines than only disseminating core knowledge to undergraduate majors, we use the PaD method (Clark, 2015) to understand how disciplines also are vibrant intellectual communities that provide products and services to myriad markets. Third, because how most undergraduates understand "research" is not how scholars comprehend it (e.g., Wineburg, 1991), we start with "presearch" and use a literature review to integrate research insights from two academic disciplines on a real-life challenge.
