Summary

The results of a seminar in which representatives from Australia, New Zealand, and eight Asian countries discussed interdisciplinary research in education are presented. Types of interdisciplinary research were identified, and the conditions necessary for its development were examined. The recent impetus toward interdisciplinary research has emanated from concerns about economic and national development, social justice, the implications for national unity of linguistic and ethnic diversity, and a representation in schools of continuing cultural and social traditions. In some countries there are limitations of knowledge on the part of educational researchers. For example, researchers need to know more about computer and communications technologies. Cooperation and communication among the disciplines and support from the community must be encouraged. Guidelines for the advancement of interdisciplinary educational research are discussed. The annexes, which make up over two-thirds of the report, contain a list of participants and the papers from the individual countries. (RM)
