3.1.3. allows for unique learning opportunities can learn from peers can learn methods from another discipline deepens the learning experience

3.1.4. encourage 'constructivist paradigm' people create their own understanding and knowledge of the world through experiences and reflection on those experiences when students encounter something new, they have to integrate it with previous ideas and experiences by connecting the new knowledge to something already known the theory assumes that we are active creators of our own knowledge

3.2.1. breadth could come at the expense of depth

3.2.2. some students may find the fast pace of interdisciplinary study/teaching too challenging in order to fully grasp and understand concepts
