Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to describe and analyse the nature of an interdisciplinary approach to the development of an online learning module designed for secondary mathematics Initial Teacher Education Students (ITES). In developing a module on mathematical modelling, team members crossed both disciplinary and institutional boundaries. Semi-structured interviews were used to gain insight into the perspectives of team members on the collaboration and analysed through the frame of boundary crossing. The analysis revealed the process of collaboration was advantageous in a number of ways but brought with it complexities that required accommodation.
