For the development of comprehensive plans of teaching and action it is essential to have multidisciplinary professional growth of educators. The interdisciplinary or we can say multidisciplinary learning is said to be a comprehensive way of binding the topic, ideas and the text in a single thread to shine the domains of multiple knowledge. Beyond the scope of curriculum design this type of development among teachers could improve the methods of learning by changing the depth and scope of learning. To have an improvement in work environment, it is essential to change the strategies of problems solving, skills analysis, communication, research methodologies, time management, critical thinking, writing, teamwork, self-management and many more. As per the demand of time it is important to have a change in the style of diverse learning along with change in disciplinary perspectives.Present paper deals with an overview on need and importance of multidisciplinary development of teachers. Society requires change in the cultural backgrounds. The best way of achieving the target is to promote multidisciplinary education. The National Education Policy 2020 proposes the concept of multidisciplinary approach in education for the holistic development of all. This kind of approach is noble and unique. The trainee teachers could impress the learners. They could become skillful and multi-dimensional with the experiences collected from this platform. Any teacher could illustrate the ideas in an easy and clear way. Educators would be in a position to impart the hybrid content to learners, which he had gathered from the interdisciplinary approach. The future educators would be able to understand the multidisciplinary curriculum in which a student of engineering could take a subject of humanities. This type of approach is a reflection of our "Gurukul parampara", the ancient system of education. Our ancient teaching learning system favors the multi-disciplinary teaching learning method. The students of diverse levels would be able to learn the holistic learnings. It is highly desirable to introduce diverse subjects at a common platform for learners. Also it is required to start such programs for training of teachers which would provide multidisciplinary methods of teaching and learning.
