In this episode, we’re joined by Ed Fidoe, Chief Executive at the London Interdisciplinary School (LIS). LIS, a brand-new university with its own degree awarding powers. It’s launching in September 2021 and has attracted academics from prestigious universities including Oxford, Harvard, UCL and LSE.
They have developed the UK’s first interdisciplinary degree. Focusing on interdisciplinary problems and methods, rather than specialising in one subject. Ed talks about their focus on extraordinary teaching, teaching design, their alternative admissions process and how they planned a brand new university.
