Quotes from the episode
It was really fascinating to see how students across these three disciplines had different orientations from day one to this issue of homelessness.
One of the real benefits to interdisciplinary teaching is the exposure to different perspectives.
Students have such a deeper understanding when they’re actually doing the research rather than just hearing about research methods.
Once they have an experience and actually talk to a person who is experiencing homelessness, all of those preconceptions start to drop away; and that’s the beauty of doing research too.
