Interdisciplinary Affinity: Definitions and Connections to Physics Identity
written by Tyler D. Scott, Zahra Hazari, Geoff Potvin, Philip M. Sadler, and Gerhard Sonnert
Though there has been much progress in research on interdisciplinarity over the last decades, two significant limitations still exist. First, there are inconsistent definitions of what interdisciplinarity is. Second, definitions are limited to performance elements. In a break from this prior work, and building on promising preliminary research, we seek to define interdisciplinary affinity, a measure of students' self-reported interests and beliefs about interdisciplinarity. On the basis of hypothesized dimensions of interdisciplinarity, we draw on a large-scale national survey to build a useful measure of interdisciplinary affinity. Also, we investigate relationships between interdisciplinary affinity and physics identity, and particularly, the interest and recognition dimensions of physics identity.
