Abstract

We outline the theoretical underpinnings of interdisciplinary learning as an essential element of Education for Sustainability in Higher Education. We then critically examine how the literature has reported the implementation of interdisciplinary sustainability programs and discuss why such programs are not common at Australian universities, despite the many recommendations and frameworks developed for their implementation. The implementation of our program will then be described and the implications of this for the development of interdisciplinary EfS programs at other universities in Australia.
