The DMU Transdisciplinary Common Room [video]

I passionately believe that academia must break out of its silo mentality if it’s to remain relevant. When I was Professor of New Media at De Montfort University I helped establish a Transdisciplinary Common Room (TDC) where staff and students from across the disciplines could meet and talk in an informal silo-free environment. Fresh out this week, here’s a video by Tove Dalenius and Lisa Gee which celebrates the first two years of the TDC. I’ve left the university now but I hope it continues to thrive.
