Abstract

This paper maps our experience of conceptualising and teaching an interdisciplinary first-year undergraduate ‘Higher Education Orientation’ module against the seminal paper written by Lea and Street in 1998. We argue for third spaces within the curriculum and for practices that re-imagine what education is and what the university could be.
