STEAM Education: Interdisciplinarity is unstoppable. The Ministry of Education has designated "interdisciplinarity" as the 14th discipline category
Interdisciplinarity is a new discipline formed on the basis of interdisciplinarity. Interdisciplinary integration is an inevitable trend of future scientific development and an important driving force for accelerating scientific and technological innovation.
In fact, this is very much in line with the interdisciplinary learning in the STEAM education concept. Because a problem involves many aspects, the essence of the problem can only be seen from multiple perspectives, and the fundamental goal is to solve people's practical or theoretical problems more effectively.
STEAM education was born to train innovative talents in the future. With the coming of the era of artificial intelligence, IT is believed that STEAM education will be more and more valued and welcomed by the public, schools, governments and enterprises.
Why to set up interdisciplinary subjects?
As the name implies, cross-disciplines are the integration of two or more disciplines, such as artificial intelligence, mathematical finance, political communication and so on. Because its place has frontier sex, cross discipline also becomes more and more take an examination of grind person favor major.
Interdisciplinary subjects are often confused with interdisciplinary subjects. In order to promote the scientific and orderly development of interdisciplinary subjects, the Academic Degrees Committee of The State Council is studying and formulating relevant measures for the establishment and management of interdisciplinary subjects.
Further clarify what is interdisciplinary, cross subject how to construct development, relying on the interdisciplinary basic problems, such as how to develop the talent training and in the interdisciplinary setting conditions, setup, degree authorization and awarded to make specific provision, quality assurance, etc, to explore with Chinese characteristics of interdisciplinary setting and directory management system.
Set the meaning of interdiscipline
Interdisciplinary integration is an important feature of the current development of science and technology, an important source of the emergence of new disciplines, an effective way to cultivate innovative talents, and an internal demand of economic and social development.
Along with the evolution of a new round of technological revolution and industrial revolution accelerated, some important scientific problems and key core technology has present a revolutionary breakthrough precursor, a new branch and a new growth point, overwhelming cross discipline depth fusion, economic and social development of high-level innovative, compound and applied talents demand more urgent.
In order to improve the discipline system of higher education in the new era, further enhance the ability to support major breakthroughs in scientific and technological innovation and major theoretical innovation.
On the basis of full demonstration and extensive solicitation of opinions, the Academic Degrees Committee of The State Council has decided to set up "interdisciplinary departments", which will be directly reflected in the catalogue of disciplines, so as to enhance the recognition of interdisciplinary disciplines among academia, industries, enterprises and the public, and provide a better channel and platform for the development of interdisciplinary disciplines.
1.Choose more industries, a wide range of employment.
2. Interdisciplinary talents are scarce resources in the talent market.
3. It's easier to excel in these new industries.
