Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to describe the processes utilised to develop an online learning module within the Opening Real Science (ORS) project--"Modelling the present: Predicting the future." The module was realised through an interdisciplinary collaboration, among mathematicians, scientists and mathematics and science educators that drew on the enquiry-based approach underpinning ORS as well as structuring devices and working practices that emerged during the course of the module development. The paper is a precursor to further research that will investigate the effectiveness of the module in terms of students' learning and attitudes as well as the module development team members' perspectives on the interdisciplinary collaboration that took place.
