Abstract:Two defining characteristics of the iSchools are that they are interdisciplinary and embrace a social agenda. With this emphasis on broader societal impacts, this vision for the iSchools closely aligns with the concept of transdisciplinarity. This poster presents preliminary results from an examination of the 175 iSchool doctoral student dissertations completed in 2010 and 2011 by students in the 21 iSchools as of 2009 (according to Wiggins and Sawyer, 2011). The purpose is to establish a snapshot of the level of transdisciplinarity among the iSchools.
