Inter- and transdisciplinary collaboration is currently being celebrated in academic and professional media as a response to the coronavirus pandemic and other complex and dynamic societal challenges. NIE online events facilitate the exchange of our current, multifaceted situation, and its immediate effects on education. How may educational programmes, and scholars of interdisciplinary teaching and learning, productively respond to our situation and its many challenges?

Previous editions focused on online teaching, actionability and inclusive education, and integrative interdisciplinarity. The theme of the fourth edition is Arts-Science collaborations. Whereas in previous times these were almost separate fields, nowadays they are more in interaction with each other.
Examples are the developments of STEAM (STEM + Arts) and the use of creative and design methods in academic work. The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences established an Arts Society which gives, not just humanities scholars, but artists a place to share ideas with professionals in the sciences.
In this edition of the NIE online events, we hope to gather insights into and best practices of the valuable role of the Arts in academic research, teaching and learning.
