Boundary Crossing as modus operandi at Wageningen University.

Boundary crossing competence, the competence to work together with others outside one’s own scientific domain, institute, culture or context, is regarded as one of the major competencies needed by future university graduates in order to respond better to emerging global challenges. Boundary crossing is also at the forefront of the new educational vision of Wageningen University and has been a topic of its educational innovation and research.

At Wageningen University, there is a need to address boundary crossing more explicitly and structurally throughout the diverse curricula both at the bachelor and master level, as well as policy level. A comprehensive overview of existing practices is needed, as is (scientific) insight in how boundary crossing competence develops in students and is best supported by teachers and educational environments.
