Anti-requisite(s): 81511 Problems to Possibilities


In this subject, participants engage in a creative series of practical activities that bring them to a broad understanding of creative intelligence and innovation as a field of practice. Through exploring what appear to be impossibilities, they begin to investigate and reframe uncertain and complex challenges, and experiment with emerging opportunities.

Participants are challenged to analyse problem situations from multiple perspectives and to integrate these findings in ways that lead to new possibilities. The nature of this subject embraces today's open, complex, dynamic and networked problems. Through first-hand experience, students are inspired to experiment and hone their skills through multidisciplinary collaboration, visualisation, representation and presentation.
