Description

In this subject, students interrogate their personal and disciplinary mental models, worldviews, biases and assumptions to question the current framing of complex societal problems, by examining a real-world challenge posed by the Australian Red Cross. Students consider community resilience from a range of alternative perspectives from across disciplinary and professional areas and work in multidisciplinary teams to playfully remix these perspectives and devise new approaches to tackling climate change. A range of creative methods are used to cultivate a culture of curiosity, experimentation, and inventiveness, while also identifying and probing unknowns. Through generating novel responses to this urgent real-world challenge, students test their own emerging disciplinary or professional expertise; they learn to collaborate across differences, generate insights well beyond their discipline, and use these insights to create new avenues for action in the real-world.
