There are inherent challenges in heterogeneous inter- and transdisciplinary problem-based learning (PBL). By drawing on experiences from the Techno-Anthropology study program, the authors illustrate some of them – e.g., educational process with students from diverse disciplinary and professional backgrounds, as well as teaching from different physical and academic localities.

This book proposes transdisciplinary threshold concepts as a theoretical framework, which can guide educational change and successfully manage such heterogeneity. It illustrates how a User Innovation Management workshop format can be used to involve teachers, supervisors, and students in the development of inter- and transdisciplinary PBL.

Additionally, this book uses the four transdisciplinary threshold concepts – liminality, scaffolding, pedagogical content knowledge, and pedagogical stance – as inspiration for thirteen specific types of activities of student, supervisor, and teacher engagement implemented in the Techno-Anthropology program. These examples are meant to be used by all three parties as they continuously engage with the many peculiarities of inter- and transdisciplinary problem-based learning.
