Interdisciplinarity in the University Colleges: Versions of interprofessional responsibility

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review


The chapter argues that the concept of interdisciplinarity has been replaced by the concept of interprofessionalism, as a purposeful going across and beyond professional and disciplinary boundaries, in the University Colleges in Denmark, since the beginning of the millennial. The chapter explores interprofessionalism as a material and discursive phenomenon and proposes an analytical strategy for unfolding how different versions of the same educational phenomenon emerge. The analysis unfolds how interprofessionalism emerge as two different versions of itself in interprofessional modules. Versions that enact different appropriate ways of practicing an interprofessional responsibility for the future professionals. The versions of interprofessionalism guides and are suggestive of the responsibilities future professionals should recognize as theirs, for them to be recognized by others, as appropriate interprofessional practitioners. The chapter concludes by discussing the complex forms of responsibility that these co-existing versions of interprofessionalism implies.
