What pedagogical opportunities can be exploited within an interdisciplinary setting? The authors describe the merging of two departments at North East Scotland College, with the aim of fostering an environment of creativity and cross-collaboration. In particular they focus on how the developing professional identity of the Sound Production student cannot be fully realized without input from other disciplines, and the tension between scaffolding the natural development of interdisciplinary student relationships and stifling them. Looking forward the authors discuss the ramifications for extending these practices, given the lens of advantage and pitfall that have been experienced.
