OLET5702 Complex Problem Solving

Credit points: Teacher/Coordinator: Assoc Prof Martin Tomitsch Session: Intensive July Classes: workshop 7 hrs/wk Assessment: online quizzes (35%), in-class activities (35%) and reflective statement (30%) Mode of delivery: Block mode

In this unit, you will learn practical techniques for addressing complex problems and the role of interdisciplinary perspectives in developing innovative strategies. Complex problems, sometimes referred to as being ¿Wicked¿, include concerns of global dimension that deeply impact on the lives of people, such as climate change, mass urbanisation, world poverty and food security. Through examples, you will develop an understanding of what constitutes complex problems. You will be taken through scenarios, enabling your insights into the use of techniques across a range of practical situations. Through exercises and practice techniques you will integrate your disciplinary expertise with perspectives from other disciplines. Building on this understanding, you will assess and reflect on how problem-solving techniques can lead to innovative strategies that address complex challenges in research projects.
