I too inherited such a course, it was not a good experience. Is there a 
possibility of using it to illuminate disciplinary issues by looking at 
different practices, I am thinking of the kind of interprofessional 
learning that we aspire to in healthcare education, as well as getting 
students to come up with their own examples within a single discipline. 
However, interprofessional learning is argued to depend on a thorough 
knowledge of one's own professional area, so more difficult to do at the 
beginning of a course.
Regards
Janette

So I naively followed that model. Now there were a number of factors which militated against successful engagement here (e.g. lecture format which I could not change in time) but a big problem was the sense that the students had of a lack of connection and authenticity with the subjects they were studying in their 'academic' modules. Indeed because of a timetable clash I had to run separate workshops for the students taking management and/or economics and I was able to theme these sessions with that subject and they engaged much more.
