The paper reports on a funded project focussed on disciplinarity and technology in the New Life Sciences (NLS) where the understanding of the discipline is mediated through a number of technologies. These disciplinary and technological innovations have implications for learning particularly in the meta-discipline; the New Life Sciences, where much knowledge is effectively taught only via digital technologies, and represented in symbolic forms other than, or in conjunction with language. This project describes a systematic program of re-theorisation, collaborative trialling, and intervention focused on NLS curriculum and pedagogy to challenge the conventional wisdom that information and communication technologies (ICT) are pivotal to the understanding and conceptual development of the students.
