Global Challenges 2 provides students with an opportunity to further explore the complexities and potential solutions identified within Global Challenges 1. This innovative subject is the second stage in a series of two subjects that encompasses a group-based project, allowing students to integrate their theoretical understanding and practical experience to design and develop the methodology to solve their wicked problem. Wicked problems are highly complex and difficult to define, with the solution to such problems often evolving into unintended consequences that require resolution of a new problem.
Students will work in an experiential and collaborative learning environment as they further extend upon their initial project group-based project. If a problem is wicked, investigating the complexities within a dynamic social context potentially encourages activities such as exploration and integration of multiple perspectives. Global Challenges 2 offers a unique transdisciplinary-led approach where Educators from various faculties integrate offering discipline-specific approaches.
1. Implement a range of strategies and processes to define and propose solutions for complex problems and scenarios.
2. Work collaboratively with others from a range of disciplines to achieve a common goal.
3. Research and evaluate relevant theories and concepts pertaining to sustainable futures as the basis of defining a wicked problem.
4. Communicate effectively using both written and oral formats within a diverse range of contexts.
5. Design and develop an appropriate methodology to solve a complex problem.
There are no co-requisites.
