Developing and assessing a measure of interdisciplinary communication
Although many studies have examined discipline structures in higher education, the creation of interdisciplinarity and communication at this level, there is a lack of research that examines the communication influences of interdisciplinary communication. These influences are drawn from Gudykunst and Kim’s (1997) intercultural communication organizational model for studying communication with strangers and are easily applied to interdisciplinary communication. This research seeks to identify how these influences factor together as influences of interdisciplinary communication. Additionally, the research focuses on the relationship between these influences and reports of satisfaction with interdisciplinary communication.
